Wes Jackson, director of The Land Institute in Salina, Kansas, writes to Governor-Elect John Carlin to offer suggestions on energy policy. Jackson provides details on what he calls "soft energy paths," an idea that emphasizes conservation and the use of diverse and renewable sources of energy. He argues against large-scale, centralized electric power facilities and for smaller-scale, decentralized implementations of solar, wind, hydro, and other sustainable forms of energy production. A short note by Governor-Elect Carlin acknowledging receipt of Jackson's letter is included.
