Maybe--But Not Sure What to Organize
Tell us about your experience with alternative energy:
What excites you about this campaign?
America needs alternative forms of energy that are affordable and that will produce jobs and prosperity right here in our own country. We need to make the changes NOW! I know that entrepreneurial individuals, small companies and large corporations can and will work separately, or together to produce alternative forms of energy that will be effective, clean and economical. I believe our government needs to do everything possible to encourage, enable and coordinate the efforts of those individuals and companies that are involved in the production and distribution of energy. We need to utilize oil, natural gas, windmills, clean coal, solar energy and any and all other forms of power producing resources that are safe and effective.
I would like to see as much localized and even individual production of energy as possible. With the ever present possibility of major disasters – whether natural or due to subversive activities – it would be reassuring to know that individuals, neighborhoods or communities could continue to produce energy, or quickly and easily replace their energy production, rather than having to deal with long term disruptions in their lives.
There is so much that can and should be done to sustain the quality of life that has been achieved in this great nation. We’ve educated and led the way for so many in the world to live better lives. Other nations are prospering as we witness the decline in our way of life right here in the USA. Technology, combined with wisdom as to how to use it, can bring about the positive CHANGE that we need to restore our country. We need our new President – whoever that may be – to place energy production and technology at the top of the list of priorities for the new administration.
LET’S GET ON THE FAST TRACK TO ENERGY INDEPENDENCE! LET’S DO IT NOW!
What do you want to do to help?
Of course, I’ll tell others they need to get involved. If I can find the form to enroll Pickens supporters here in Astor, Florida, I plan to get signatures tomorrow even though I already sent in my absentee ballot.
In addition, I’ve heard about someone who is producing a form of a windmill (not the traditional windmill) that could be used for an individual home or several could be used to produce energy for a neighborhood. That possibility tweaks my interest, and I’d like to help get that, or something like that, underway.
Also, if there is a company that is already producing either a traditional or alternative form of energy, but not able to move forward due to a lack of funds, I have a source that could give them a jump start in the stock market so they could raise the money needed to expand.
Of course, I suppose T. Boone Pickens can provide funding for many of the projects that are underway. Dear Mr. Pickens, I, as well as your over one million supporters, thank you for all you are doing. Let me know what I can do to help, and MAY GOD BLESS YOU!

Hi MaryLouise.......Glad that it worked. I ran into that myself and then finally realized that I had to log in to see my whole page!!! Well, I have looked around on PP and seen the post by Faye Roller on many members pages. So the word is getting out!!! Keep in touch..........>>>Lee
Thanks for the friend - I am glad to be on your team. This is our revolution. We will not need to bear arms, but we will need to work hard and smart. Our challenge - how to best build our numbers, bring attention to the plan!.... and MAKE IT HAPPEN. We have such great momentum. I see the 2 million number on the site - I hope we can do better than that. It should not take three months for us to have half of us bring just one person. Can you help with signed pledges. It is really quite easy - Boone has done the hard work. I was able to get 300+ in the first 4 days. EVERYONE wants to get off of foreign oil. It was an easy ask. WE just need to motivate thousands to go for it. ISN'T IT WORTH IT? I'm hoping for 10 million. We have the numbers to do it, but do we have the will.
Please check my comment to you on your Pickens Plan page in the inbox in the right hand corner of the page. If you do not receive my message, please let me know. I have a lot of information to share with you and tons of ideas on the comments you made on my page.......>>>Lee
"That's the question of the day at Fox News, and you can weigh in by sending them an email telling them you want to see the next president adopt the Pickens Plan!

Regradless of who we voted for - our country has decided and we must do everything in our power to insure the Obama's Presdency is a successful one. STARTING WITH ENERGY. We must continue to educate Americans one at a time how urgent renewable and alternative energies are to our future. WE ONLY ACHIEVE CHANGE WITH HARD WORK AND DEDICATION to creating a complete paradigm shift of thought in this country.
Thomas Friedman said some critical things about changing thought and getting action:
What do you think about Boone's New Energy Army marching on Washington when President-elect Obama and the new Congress are sworn in?
I think he’s on the right track.
Why do you say that?
How did we get civil rights changes in this country? It happened basically when people took to the streets and politicians saw them, understood there was an aggrieved community there that wanted action, and the politicians decided that the cost of inaction on their part was greater than the cost of action. The same thing has to happen on energy. There is only going to be real legislative change and support of renewable energy when enough politicians decide that the cost of inaction is greater than the cost of action. And bringing lots of people, and I don’t mean five, ten, twenty, but hundreds of thousands of people to bear on Capitol Hill to drive that point home is really essential.
How closely do you think the major oil-exporting countries are watching us to see whether or not America develops a sustainable energy policy?
I think they’re watching, but I think so far they’re not afraid because they’ve seen this play before. They know when global oil prices go down, it tends to kill the renewable energy industry. Happened in the ‘70s and ‘80s. And so I don’t think they’re exactly quaking in their boots yet. But I think they’re watching very closely, especially when they see the politics shift and they see people like Boone or Wal-Mart, people from the corporate sector or even from the traditional energy business such as General Electric adopting new positions- that gets their attention. They haven’t seen yet any really scale alternative to oil. Until they do, I don’t think they’ll be all that worried.
I have said all along the only way to get this done is to make it political suicide for them not to get it done! The only way we affect results on this is to be strong, be loud, be united and be consistent, in all of it. PLEASE continue to share the Pickens Plan with everyone you know. Bring them to the site. Get them to sign your pledge/petition. NOW is not the time to let down our effort, it is the time to turn up the pressure - We now know where it needs to be directed. We will eat the apple one bite at a time. Please keep it in your conversations and continue to help us build to millions of supporters. WE CAN DO THIS.
MaryLouise.........Please see the photos on my page of both Vertical Axis Wind Turbines (VAWT) and regular horizontal axis turbines. I do have links to companies producing turbines for the home.....>>>Lee
