The other side of the earth from a war-weary Persian Gulf, an unassuming country home built into a hillside northwest of Aspen has become a showcase of energy-saving technology for the environmentalists, utility executives and regulators who for nearly a decade have trooped through. Today, the home and office of Amory Lovins--arguably the best-known international advocate of energy conservation--is no longer as eccentric as it once seemed.

During an appearance on the C-SPAN cable television network, Brown cited consumer advocate Ralph Nader, environmentalist David Broward, solar energy advocate Amory Lovins and civil rights activist Jesse Jackson as possible Cabinet picks.

ENERGY UNBOUND: A FABLE FOR AMERICA'S FUTURE by Hunter Lovins, Amory Lovins and Seth Zuckerman (Sierra Club: $17.95). Eunice Bunnyhut, a Dubuque homemaker for 24 years, answers a blind want ad and winds up as U.S. secretary of Energy. The President, it seems, was frustrated with energy policies that didn't work and wanted a layperson to bring some common sense to the snarl of conflicting policies and priorities.

At an environmental conference in Los Angeles four years ago, Marc Merson got a bright idea. During a long day of bad news about vanishing rain forests and other planetary ills, he heard a word of hope: Amory Lovins, an energy conservation expert, was explaining the virtues of compact fluorescent light bulbs, an energy-saving device that lets ordinary people help solve global problems.

Gale frames the energy question in relatively narrow terms. He rightly emphasizes our lack of serious commitment to effective energy policies but implies there are few options to expanded energy supplies as future demand increases. We are told all sources are tainted by environmental hazards but nuclear power appears the least troublesome--if not for emotional reactionaries and murky politics which cloud rational thought. If we really want to be sensible about our options, why not take a cue from utilities who found conservation more profitable than new sources?
