Maybe--But Not Sure What to Organize
Tell us about your experience with alternative energy:
I was in the automotive industry for the past ten years. For the past three I walked around wondering why out of our 120 vehicles on the lot, all but 17 of them were full size suvs and trucks.
Not one was a hybrid and most of the cars had v8. Yes most of this was to the fault of the owner, but in my opinion GM was also to blame.
Now I have gone back to school for civil and environmental engineering.
What excites you about this campaign?
Mostly keeps America's money in American hands. I feel that this plan is the best idea to get Americans working and to ween us off of imported oil. Wind, CNG, solar hydro and nuclear power can make us self-sufficient and jump start the American economy.
What do you want to do to help?
Anything that I can. I have an idea that I would like to push. It would call for making a CNG grid from Miami to NY City. We also should get with companies that use semis and I-95 for moving their freight and give them tax breaks for switching to CNG. With NC having such a large deposit of Natural Gas under it, it would provide jobs for years to come and we could branch out from there. Hundreds of thousands of job would come from pulling up the gas, building the infrastructure for the CNG and switching the trucks over to run on CNG. Not to mention the money would be in our own hands.

I am one of the welcome wagon crew. We are all volunteers. Out of sheer numbers I greet daily I have a paste and copy note.
It is not intended to overwhelm you, just give you a direction and some contacts. I do read every profile page.
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.
*************Please, I ask the first sites you visit to get accurate info and articles to see pretty much what the plan is about and where the plan stands, and please come back to these sites often as changes take place regularly. Some are long, please; take the time to get all the details.
On the home page, click on About The Plan ~ Boone Cam ~ Blog - You’ll see the Pie-graph Mechanics.
Our future is focus 1- at this point in time! If not now, When? If not you, WHO?
Mr. Obama has voiced that eliminating the dependence of foreign oil is a top priority.

There is a group for almost everything. The Forums/discussions on this site are many and you’ll probably find something that interests or concerns you. Some are very long and were started months ago. For the ones that concern you, please keep in mind, events are remembered and relayed differently by those commenting, which as we all too well know equals at least three sides to the event.
After you have read the sites I mentioned, if you need anything else to help you, while you help the push, please stop by. I am proud to put my efforts towards this cause. Again, Welcome; Tom
Many plans are on the table. Look in groups and discn's.
