Rocky Mountain Institute's Lovins says U.S can be off oil by 2050

Can the United States stop its use of oil, coal and nuclear completely within the next 40 years? In his new book, "Reinventing Fire: Bold Business Solutions for the New Energy Era," Rocky Mountain Institute Chairman and Chief Scientist Amory Lovins argues that with a shift in thinking from the business community, the U.S. economy could be supported in large part by renewables. During today's OnPoint, Lovins discusses why he believes there is a disconnect between rhetoric in Washington and progress on innovation.
