hey man, i dont know how the words "delete comment" found their way to the end of my post... I've been cutting and pasting bits and pieces of rants I've been sending to people all evening, i guess I got caught... oh well, these things happen.
Hi. I saw your post on "why did it have to be pickens" and I've been thinking about it.
I say there is no doubt, Mr Pickens is an opportunist... he saw personal opportunity for his business in getting bush elected in '04, now he sees personal opportunity in financing this wind farm.
Good news and good ideas are good, regardless of the source. Clemens Vonnegut, (father of Kurt) once said "if what Jesus said was good, does it matter if he was the son of god?"
Now Pickens sees an opportunity to make himself some cash, and he's exploiting the environmental movement to do so... I say fine. Consequentialist philosophy is results-based... if the net result of this whole thing is that we get more alternative fuels and become less dependant on foreign sources (and a by-product is some opportunist gets rich) I'll grudgingly say "fine by me". I HATE what he and the swift-boaters did, but I hope he is as ruthless about getting clean energy as he was about dirtying Kerry.
In the meantime, we can all do alot of little things to use less energy (and therefore consume less oil)... and in doing so, we can lower our electric bills, raise our gas mileage, and live healthier. I outlined a few ideas in a blog post here http://push.pickensplan.com/forum/topic/show?id=2187034%3ATopic%3A193424 When you get a minute, drop me a line and let me know what you think. Delete Comment
