Is it just me or has T. Boone Pickens bitch slapped the entire environmental movement? Pickens has done what an army of environmentalists never could: create momentum behind a national renewable energy initiative. The Pickens Plan is a massive wind power initiative. He wants to get America generating 20% of it’s power from our wind corridor in the middle of the country. With that new electricity in the grid, Pickens thinks we can stop using natural gas in power plants and start using it in cars. Thus we can free ourselves from the burdens of foreign oil. I doubt things will go down like that but the fact is, he wants to strengthen our power grid and create a massive amount of renewable wind energy. I dig it.
This man also gets things done. This is the email update I got from him:
“We have big, big news! The Pickens Plan Pledge is ready and is already in the hands of EVERY Member of Congress. Every United States Senator. And every Governor.
Governor Bill Richardson of New Mexico signed the pledge on Wednesday. Remember, Gov. Richardson was a Secretary of Energy, so he knows what the Pickens Plan is all about and he knows what it means to America.”
While the liberals complained, this Texas oil man acted. Thank you T. Boone.
Should we forgive him for financing the disgusting Swift Boat ads that sunk the Kerry campaign?
