Over the last several months I have been intrigued by the commercial that T. Boone Pickens has been airing. He has taken on the oil crisis as his cause and wants to end our dependence on foreign oil.
Last night I watched a 90 minute town hall meeting he held in Nashville, TN on the subject. He is a big advocate of using natural gas for transportation. He wants to start it out on Federal vehicles, public transportation, and 18 wheelers. Can you imagine the impact that would have on our environment alone?
He also wants to establish wind energy along the wind corridor between Texas and the Canadian border. This will take longer and there is the logistics of getting the energy from point A to point B. Our power grids will need to be changed but the technology is there and it would mean a lot of jobs for our country.
Being a child of the 60’s it is fun for me to have a cause to believe in and I think this man has the right idea, not to mention an army of 1.3 million who are helping to spread the word. He will need help from Congress and the White House to get this initiative moving forward.
Please visit his website at http://www.pickensplan.com where you can join the army, sign petitions, and spread the word. A cleaner environment. What a great legacy to leave our children and grandchildren.
