We are a voluntary community of individuals who are placing our combined support behind T. Boone Pickens and his efforts to send our government a clear (heard) message that we must reduce our nation’s dependence on foreign oil through the use of all domestic energy alternatives. This site is a place to interact with fellow Pickens Plan supporters, keep up with events and opportunities to help get more involvement. .
We need to Push.PickensPlan.com – or “Push” as we like to call it.
Our future really does depend on us at this point in time!
If not now, WHEN? If not you, WHO? Been put off to long!!!!

Again Welcome; Tom
I am proud to put my efforts towards this cause.
The intent of this site was to stay out of the political side game.
We have heard both hopefuls touch on the energy issue but neither has really committed 100%.
I hate to say this but you will find as you scan through the gazillion discussions the political quagmire has filtered in.
One can understand how our gov got so out of control.
Just keep in mind As Sara Lee tells us (you cannot please all the people all the time).
WELCOME!! Just wanted to take a minute to thank you for taking the first step and joining Pickens Plan. We are real people here with real dreams and a desire to get something done to secure a better future! Here are some ways you can help.
EMAIL A LETTER TO YOUR REPRESENTATIVES
The creators of this site have given us the ability, with little effort, to send a letter to our Representatives in Washington and Governor, too. Please go to "THE PLEDGE" (at the very top of this page on the blue header). On the top of the pledge page there are three rectangular buttons- two blue, and ONE RED BUTTON, that reads "CONTACT CONGRESS". Fill in the short, standard form. Done!
DOWNLOAD AND PRINT THE PLEDGE
Carry some copies with you and get as many as you can signed and faxed back to Boone. This is how we build our numbers fast! Be a part of the "100 CLUB" by faxing in 100 signed pledges. Let me know when you are done and I will add you to that growing list! I am a member! If you need ideas on how to reach this worthy goal, please ask me!
BRING 5 FOLKS TO JOIN
The more members we have the bigger our voice to Congress! With enough members, they will finally have to listen to us, instead of the lobbyists and special interests, who will certainly try to derail this historic effort. If you bring 5 members and THEY bring 5 members… well you can do the math!
ASK OUR PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES FOR THEIR PLAN
Check out Pickens "What’s Your Plan?" petition – let’s find out what exactly each candidate has in mind!
PERSONAL ACTION OPTIONS
We need to do more than “preach to the choir”. Sharing ideas with each other is encouraging but that will not 1) increase our membership nor 2) influence public policy. If you know someone in the press or someone who blogs - get them to cover this. Ask those in the public eye to support this plan.
A GROUP FOR EVERYONE
Check out the many groups for Solar, CNG, your area, etc. Connect, learn and share. We grow stronger with your input. If you don't see a group that speaks to your interest, then start a group of your own. Born leader or organizer? If you are ready to lead, check out the “Organizers and Leaders: Start Here” group on the Groups page.
LAST BUT NOT LEAST
We can always use new, fresh Welcome Wagon “drivers”! It is important that we greet each new member of Pickens Plan (as I am doing now to you!) and let him or her know what can be done immediately. If you have some free time during the day, let me know and I will send you explicit instructions! They are also on the blog on my page.
THERE IS NO TIME TO DELAY
…to wait and see…or to see if someone else will step up to the plate. It is time for US to roll up our sleeves and go to work. Right now momentum is working in our favor, but if gas prices retreat, the public will forget the pain, and our moment may be lost. Now is our chance to be a part of the solution!PLEASE feel free to FRIEND ME so we can keep in touch and share ideas!
Thanks again for joining this historical effort. With just a little effort from each member WE CAN DO THIS!
Warm wishes for a GREEN RENEWABLE FUTURE!!!
