Maybe--But Not Sure What to Organize
Tell us about your experience with alternative energy:
I have been a strong supporter of wind, solar and geothermal energy sources to generate hydrogen gas from water as the fuel source for the future. I also support natural gas as the intermediate source to get off of foreign oil. The German automaker BMW and the Japanese automaker Honda have both had hydrogen combustion engine cars for about 5 years. This year BMW is giving away 100 hydrogen power vehicles to celebrities, industry leaders, and notable people to help get everyone onboard with the idea. Honda has fuel cell cars that use hydrogen. Hydrogen production from water needs wind, solar and geothermal energy (your core projects) to power it. A Distribution network is key and we must get the gas stations to offer natural gas and hydrogen to consumers. American automakers must switch over their cars to natural gas and hydrogen, thus keeping high paying American jobs, helping the economy, the environment and reducing our dependency on foreign oil. We need business leaders like Pickens to show government the way. We need the leadership of sound business people to demand Congress listen.
What excites you about this campaign?
America must have energy independence and energy security. Money is power and America cannot afford to send all of its money to the Middle East, thus giving up our power. American money is being used to fund our enemies. America cannot allow its enemies to be emboldened, to become rich and powerful, nor can we allow countries like Iran to black mail us (or the world) by threatening the straits of Hormuz. Economic power is what America can loose by not being self sufficient with respect to energy. Our mighty military machine also is threatened by not having the economic and energy independence we once had. The Pickens Plan shows America the way to maintain our position of world leadership and allows us to lead by example. Our future and that of our children depend upon its success. America’s future depends on this plan succeeding. The global climate change is being driven by greenhouse gases and we must change that for our children, for the wildlife, and for our very existence as a species on this planet. Too many politicians have ignored these facts and too many leaders failed to lead based on these facts. WE the American business people must take action; stop the mindless rhetoric and pointless debates. We must cause real change to occur. We must drive actual change by doing. This project is a great beginning. In the early 60’s President John Kennedy issued a profoundly positive and world changing challenge to the American people. He challenged us to put men on the moon and safely return them home by the end of the decade. America rose to that challenge successfully. Today America faces an even greater challenge but our leaders have failed to inspire us with such a challenge. So therefore I challenge you to put America on the course of changing our energy platforms to wind, solar and geothermal. I challenge America to get off of risky foreign oil that pollutes or planet and onto hydrogen whose production from water can be powered by pollution free sources like these. We have the technology; we just lack the will and the actions to do it. I challenge America to lead the world by example. I challenge America to make the switch happen not in 10 years but in 5 years. We can do it. We must do it and we shall do it.
What do you want to do to help?
I might even consider leaving IBM to join your cause if the right opportunity came along.

Please take a look at the executive summary on my page. We are in the process of establishing a nonprofit innovation laboratory in Houston Texas dedicated to inspiring young people to pursue technology careers and to the development of the next-generation of strategic technologies to meet our current global challenges. Alternative energy is a major focus of our program.
Right now, we are in need of people willing to sponsor our efforts or to finding sponsorship for us.
We believe this can be the beginning of an effort that can spread to other areas of the country and create a critical mass of new technology ideas and innovative technologists to meet the challenges.
Any assistance you could provide would be appreciated.
Enjoyed seeing your bio and comments on the leadership board and want to offer you an invitation to join group discussions on the creation of an investment fund that will jump start the Pickens Plan. Step onto the court and let me know your thoughts.
My life's goal is to have all residential property co-generating electricity in North America by 2025. Little know fact it's only 25% of entire North American Grid Consumption.
This is attainable we have the technology and the man-power.....
We must start now!!!! Time for talk is over.....
I have introduced the Boldest Solar/Housing Initiative ever put forth...
Entire subdivisions of low-cost Modulars with little to no electric bill that retail from $79,900 to $149,900 680sq 2/1 to 1380sq 3/2.
Meets the need for low-cost housing and helps over Stressed Grid during PEAK_USAGE hrs as entire subdivisions come on-line becoming virtual mini-generating stations.
As well as helps the environment…
It is the short term solution to a long term problem.......
Now that I have come home to South Georgia....
it is time to enlist All the help with this I can get.
I need more R & D with my new patent Idea an will be asking for Ga Tech's help.....with the SOLAR POWERED RECIRCULATOR GENERATOR which will drive the cost of production down by almost 60% and will also be going back to Washington DC in this election year to demand more from our "so called elected or soon-to-be-elected officials".
I am in negotiations with Roger Little of Spire Solar in Mass to build a 100mw manufacturing plant in Liberty County Ga.
My plan is simple mix Roger's little assembly line with RapidModular.com's walling panels to produce under one roof the

You're speaking my language.
I have access to 3000 acres of leasable property in Woodward, OK. With this major public announcement of support for the wind power industry, I am going to pursue my long dormant plan to create a wind energy franchise. Sounds like if I could find enough investors of our like mind, it might just work.
