We all need to thank Mr. Pickens for explaining the energy problem that we as a nation face. Earlier it was one Group (users) pointing fingers at the other Group (suppliers) and vice versa. The problem is real. It was magnified to some extent, in recent times, by speculators. But, the truth is we are importing more oil every year and producing less. We are sending billions of dollars overseas.
I like what Mr. Pickens is preaching but I do not think he has disclosed his Plan. I have read and reread everyhing that is on this web and I have failed to find the Plan.
Let us imagine that you Plan to go to visit your grandmother in a far away city and start to make a Plan. You will decide when to leave from home. How you will travel from home to grandmother's, how you will pay for the travel, what clothes you will take, and also what you will do with your grandmother. Mr. Picken's has told us that he would like to visit his granny because it is good to do so that but he has provided no details on how he Plans to accomplish the mission.
His Plan needs to be supplemented by other plans. Mr. Picken's Plan (presently undefined) will not get us to Energy Independence. I request you study the People's petition for Energy Independence .
It clearly defines where the money will come from, who will collect it, who will spend it and how, what can be expected at the conclusion of 5 and 10 years and also what will happen when we have become Energy Independent. This Plan is not dependent on the whims of the Stock Market or the condition of the credit markets or the individual investors. The Plan makes investment every year, rain or shine, till the goal is achieved.
Please (a) sign the Petition and (b) forward it to your friends. United we can achieve Energy Independence and avoid this constant financial bleeding of our great nation.
Also, if you want to become an partner in this endeavour leave a note. It will be a Labor of Love for a Country that we love. Just think what it would be like to be Energy Independent. What it will do to our standard of living. The opportunities it will offer us, our children and grand children.
Regards and Best wishes,
