Winning the oil endgame in America to be discussed at NJIT forum

America's energy future is choice, not fate, and U.S. dependence on oil can be eliminated with proven technologies that create wealth and strengthen security. That's the message Nathan Glasgow of the Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) will bring to New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) in his presentation on Oct. 25, 2006, at NJIT's Technology and Society Forum http://tsf.njit.edu. Admission is free and the public is invited. For more information about attending the event, call Rosalyn Roberts at 973-596-3433.

Glasgow, scheduled to speak at 3 p.m. in the NJIT Campus Center, is a consultant advising RMI clients in the energy, commercial and industrial sectors. He is also special aide to Amory Lovins, CEO of the institute. RMI is an entrepreneurial nonprofit organization that fosters the efficient and restorative use of resources to make the world secure, just, prosperous, and life-sustaining.

Glasgow is a co-author with Lovins of Winning the Oil Endgame, which details how the United States can revitalize its economy and transition from oil within a few decades. He also has experience in green building, environmental science and information technology. Glasgow holds a bachelor's degree in human biology from Stanford and a master's in economics from the University of California, Santa Barbara.

Glasgow will chart a clear roadmap for getting the United States completely, attractively, and profitably off oil. This roadmap integrates several technological components for displacing oil: using oil twice as efficiently, substituting biofuels and natural gas, and, optionally, hydrogen.

The route for the transition beyond oil will expand customer choice and wealth, and will be led by business for profit. The public policies proposed to accelerate this transition are market-oriented without taxes and innovation-driven without mandates. According to Glasgow and his colleagues, a $180-billion investment o
