The Pickens Plan

For those of you who have not seen the recent ads on CNBC for Pickens Plan - you can go to the web site at -

It's a significant statement and we all need to take hold of what he is saying as a lifelong respected oil man. He is pushing wind and natural gas and new technology in alternative energy to deal with rising oil prices and our dependence on foreign oil.

According to his site -
We Are in a Crisis
Our dependence on foreign oil forms the intersection of the three most critical issues America currently faces: the economy, the environment and our national security.

There is a Solution
America is blessed with the world's greatest wind power corridor and abundant reserves of clean natural gas. The Pickens Plan will utilize these tremendous resources to build a bridge to the future — a blueprint to reduce foreign oil dependence by harnessing domestic energy alternatives and buying time for us to develop even greater new technologies.

The Plan calls for building new wind generation facilities that will produce 20% of our nation's electricity and allow us to use natural gas as a transportation fuel. The combination of these domestic energies can replace more than one-third of our foreign oil imports. And we can do it all in 10 years.
