Are you interested in becoming an organizer in your area?
Tell us about your experience with alternative energy:
I don't have much experience with alernative energy. Though I do encourage the idea of using nuclear, solar and wind energy as well as natural sources. I like the idea of smart cars, and want to obtain one some day. I like to walk and I find it more relaxing then driving. If anything I use public transportation, trains and buses. But walking is good for the body!
What excites you about this campaign?
Wanting to change this country and how it consumes oil so much. I believe in change and that this plan can do just that. I found it to be one of the best plans and one of the best ways to bring this country out of a crisis. I'm fascinated by wind and nuclear energy and want to see it get used for more benifical ways in the US.
What do you want to do to help?
Anything. I want people to see how we need alternative energies to change the enviorment and the country. I'm ready to help T. Boone Pickens and his plan.

RI may be the first state in the nation to have Off shore Wind Turbines to produce Eelctricity
1000 new jobs will be created in RI with the company that will be installing the turbines
This is a link to an Article in Thursday 3/19/09 Providence Journal Front Page on the Pickens Plan Forum that I Organized
Can I please submit your name as a supporter of the Pickens Plan? We are trying to gather over 1,000 new supporters from RI before April 1st. I am available to answer any questions you may have.
If other friends or family members support it, will you please include their info as well.
I only need Name, Zip Code and email.
Here is the plan if you would like to see a short video

The Pickens plan is simple and do able. At current gas prices we
spend over 400 billion a year (that we borrow from China) on foreign oil.
(when it was higher, the number was 700 billion, it will be there again
Picken's plan is to:
1. Use American technology and renewable solutions for electricity.
Wind, solar, geothermal, hydro, etc.
2. Use CNG (natural gas) for transportation fuel, especially
trucks, buses and municipal vehicles- almost 40% of our needs as a
country. Batteries currently can not move 18 wheelers. CNG is cleaner and
less expensive than foreign oil, and it is ours!
3. Boone is an "all of the above" guy, as long as it is an American
solution, and the money stays in this country.
I am working with a national effort to gather millions of
supporters to insure that Congress supports our efforts to finally get
this country to be energy independant. Brazil has done it....why can't
we? Cheap oil has gotten us here, but we must finally end it. Our economy
and national security depend upon it.
We could become net exporters of renewable energies and ride this
horse out of the economic trough we are in. We have a very limited time to
make this work. Call it a perfect storm, organized by a titan of
commerce who is leading this historical effort to make sure we get this
Look forward to hearing from you.
I am hosting a RI renewables Meet Up, Thursday morning fo a one hour coffee strategy session in Providence. Can you join us?
In the meantime, would you please download 10 pledges, get them signed and fax them to the 888# on the bottom of the pledge. It is an easy ask - Boone has done the hard work. We have over 500 RI members. 10 pledges each gets us 5,000 more RI'ers. I look forward to working with you.
Our RI forefathers were the ones who held up the process and demanded democracy hundreds of years ago. We have a long history of being the leaders on important issues. WE CAN DO THIS!
RI Renewable Member,
RI may be small in size, but certainly not ability.
I am a lifelong Rhode Islander. I am working with the Pickens Plan folks to help with the "Pickens U" - college campaign. Do you know of someone in Rhode Island, at one of the colleges or universities here, that would want to get involved with supporting the Pickens Plan, and help us get off foreign oil, and on to American alternative and renewable energy sources! Now more than ever most folks realize the urgency of keeping that 700 billion a year here in our economy!
We have direct support from the top. This would be outstanding on a resume and be very fulfilling work for the right person.
Best Personal Regards
Please also consider collecting signed pledges (like a petition)for this effort. Check out my page for information of the 100 pledge challenge!
THANK YOU, KIM
I joined the Pickens Plan about a week ago and have spent some time today looking over the features of our website. I just wanted to introduce myself. I’m very excited about our community because I’m also a member of one.org (U2 – Bono – World Hunger) and have personally seen the results of people banning together and influencing our government. The Internet has made it possible. Please keep in touch. All the best, Luis Garcia…
