Are you interested in becoming an organizer in your area?
Tell us about your experience with alternative energy:
I previously worked with a power company , and I am Member of the West Texas Wind Consortium. In the 70's my father was one of the first peole to implement solar power into his home. ( Our hot water was heated by the sun - we lived in a nice suburban home and it was very discrete)
He taught one of the first Solar Power - classes in the Nation at TSTC in Sweetwater during those days. Dad was ahead of his time. * He stopped pursueing it in the late 80's because of lack of interest and support.
What excites you about this campaign?
I believe its patriotic, in that it is a grass roots effort to solve our nations energy crisis. I am happy to support something that is not politically motivated by either party. I think invovlment and change is critical for the stablity of our Nation.

I'm up in Fort Smith, AR and it looks like my wife and I might be moving to Abilene in the very near future. My mother and stepdad live in Abilene and have for many years so I am not exactly a stranger to the area having visited them on numerous occasions over the years. Anyway, while I have their perspective on the current and general economic scene in Abilene, I would greatly appreciate another, and unbiased (my mother has wanted me to move to Abilene almost forever) :-), perspective from someone like yourself who lives there.
If you have the time, willingness and inclination I would like to hear from you.
I really liked your pictures, reminds me of home. I'm from Snyder Tx. I was in oil field construction for many years. I've seen good times and I've seen bad. It's a great time to be in the oil business. But I know that it's days are numbered. We have to look at wind and other sources of energy!
Thanks for trying Rebecca.. I think I am 350 something...
Just rain and more rain, no flooding yet, but downtown Brownwood is in a h*** so am sure they are... That however is normal thing if it rains a teacup it floods... Golly bum I can relate to everything your dad was telling you... I did the very same thing. We had a gas servall refridg. when I was a kid finally, until then my Mom had what was known then as a window cooler and it was not an an evap cooler either we also had an icebox that you could put 50lb blocks of in and keep things cool in the summertime. Wintertime it was not needed cos usually the window cooler thing did the trick.. She cured out her own bacons and hams, stuffed her own link saugage and smoked some if wanted to in the smokehouse... I bet I am boreing you to death.. Pass this tidbit on to your dad if you wanna..

Team work - will make the Energy Independence Dream Work!
I want to encorage our group to continue to maintain interest in this mission. I would ask that you go back and review some of the media post / and video messages T. Boone has posted on the main site for inspiration. " Particularly the one requesting interested American's invite 5 friends "
It would be a terrible shame to loose our directive and hope at this point after so many have signed up to support a positive change in America.
We must also take into account - many people who are for the Pickens Plan - may not wish to participate in something on the internet. So - I would say, contact your local media outletts and prompt them to run updated stories on the Plan and Mr. Picken's efforts. Find other ways to communicate your endorsment of the Pickens Plan - to reach other Americans. I have a friend who printed a small Pickens Plan Logo - and taped it inside her back car window.... she says people in the parking lot will talk to her when she is getting her groceries now. about what she thinks about it.. and she sends them to the web site for more information.
I think we all must begine to talk about the plan with friends and in our conversation.... I can't tell you how many people I have directed to the site - after remarking... " What do you guys think about the Pickens Plan". I remain fairly neutral and respectful of all opinions - but tell them I learned a lot by visiting and think its good for America. * People want to know answers*
Lets continue - Lets Keep up the good work!
It took us years to get into this mess.... it may take a while to get back out, but we have to keep "trying" or all will be lost.
Watch for more information on the main site too!
There are some great people invovled here - I have met some fine Americans because of this site. That alone is valuable and inspirational - but if we can work together to better our country as well....... " you know - as they say"..... That would be Priceless!
Thank you for being my new friend. Hi to your Dad.
Like him, I also started my adventure with solar hot water collectors in 1979, and became a fan since then and never stoped to work in the solar energy field. Engineering, designing, building a lot of solar system.
You bet, any American plan is better than OPEC.
