You have omitted Hunter Lovins name, which makes your article's facts incorrect.

Amory was CO-founder of RMI, and Amory and Paul CO-wrote Natural Capitalism with L. Hunter Lovins.

Do you have something against her?!

Marean - My apologies. You are correct about the co-authorship of "Natural Capitalism," and about Amory Lovins being the co-founder, not the founder, of the Rocky Mountain Institute.

For the record, I have nothing against L. Hunter Lovins. If she is also a co-founder of RMI, that fact is not obvious on their website.
