Pickens Plan

Gas prices getting to you? I will enjoy watching T. Boone Pickens, the billionaire hedge fund manager and independent oilman try to facilitate changing America's energy plan. In a brief video, Pickens summarizes his energy plan. While it faces some tough hurdles, it certainly sounds more promising than anything Congress has come up with recently. He is also having town meetings in various areas of the country.

Click the image and review Pickens' idea to help free the United States from its increasingly burdensome reliance on imported oil, an expense he puts at a staggering $700 billion annually.

Will his movement have the same impetus as Al Gore's and global warning. I dont know, but we certainly do need to decrease our dependence on foreign oil. It will take a lot of work and money to change, but energy policy needs to change. Pickens certainly does have a good marketing team working to help promote his ideas.
