What would be some good investments, so that in 30 years when I am 55 I will have some money set back? I'm not sure how this all works. I may have the wrong idea all together, but I am going to learn. Educate me. Please know what you are talking about before replying to me. I don't want any unnecessary confusion.… Continue

I am no hippie. I am no tree hugger. I think that our current energy infra-structure / policy has been convenient. If it were just me that I cared about I wouldn't change a thing. However I have kids and I want to leave them a world that is good to live in with sufficient resources to support them with a quality a life like that I have known. That is why I care.

My 1996 Crown Vic was an factory-built and engineered by Ford, it's a dedicated Natural Gas Vehicle not a conversion fuel by Compressed Natural Gas (CNG).
While it uses a Ford 4.6-L 2-valve modular V8 it's factory horsepower rating is 180 (SAE) hp. This is down roughly 10-15% from it's gasoline-fueled brother. This however does not hinder it from towing my 4500 # boat in the high altitude (8000 - 9000 ft ASL) environs of the Wasatch Mountains (Utah). Plenty of power for most drivers,… Continue

Just great. Exxon reported TODAY the highest profits for any company...in US history. Un huh. Thats right. However they quickly added that they spent 40% more money invested in exportation than ever before. I just can't work up any sympathy.

You can actually increase your fuel mileage and reduce your emissions significantly by using Omstar D-1280X. It works, I've tested in my GMC Duramax and it really worked. Check out the blog site at

Organized by Interni magazine, Green Energy Design was an exhibition of experimental, multimedia installations by some of the top international design talents. The event took place on the beautiful grounds of Milan’s Università degli Studi and it was the perfect site for a relaxing sunny Sunday morning after a week marked by loads of action and just as much rain. The main installations were along the courtyard and there were plenty of “isole… Continue

We must be willing to follow someone. I completely agree with the analogy of a Camel being the Thoroughbred Horse Designed by Committee.
T. Boone Pickens is willing to lead us into the next generation of power generation and use. We applaud his actions. We are willing to follow his ideas and his plans.
We cannot degenerate this into a mob of "Chiefs" all demanding the others to be the "Indians". No offense to any Native Americans, it just happens to fall into the easy to… Continue

Has Mr Pickens been on the Colbert show? If not, I think its a great way to reach a younger audience, such as myself, that may have similar feelings about the way things are shaping up in the country right now. Just a thought.

I recently sign-up as a memeber and think the concept is great. However, I saw a podcast from Zaproot (www.viropop.com/zaproot/episode/ZPR_20080730) and it raised some issues. Please review it and let me know if you can address the issues raised?

So far I've been really impressed with PR push associated with the PickensPlan. I've seen the commercials on TV and heard them on radio. Pickens has been all over the major networks. The results are promising. As of now, more than 90,000 have signed up on the website. Pickens has had been received by congressional committees, political party leaders and even the White House. At the same time, the campaign is building from the bottom up thanks to the social network aspect of… Continue

Pain at the pump
Today's soaring energy costs are affecting every driver, both financially and emotionally. An expression unheard of until recently is, sadly, all too true: “Pain at the pump.” Often… Continue

I have spent most of my adult life trying convince people that they have the ability and resources to make a difference in society. I have managed Trucking Companies, Lumber Companies and various other businesses. I have also been an educator, counselor and minister. Although I see that change is hard no matter where you go and most people, though not all, find it way to stressful and difficult for them. I think this in large part is why many people want to buy into the Global Warming scare. It… Continue

Dear Mr. Pickens:
Thank you for personally initiating and publicizing the most important discussion that can take place in America today. Our national security – our very nation – depends on abundant energy from reliable sources, but leadership at all levels, from elected officials to the business community, has been critically absent.
With the clarity of hindsight we now realize we have squandered more than three… Continue

In response to my previous blog post, I was disappointed to get a response that was three times longer than my original post, and that severely detracted from my message. If you have a reply to a post that is a book, post to your own blog. Also, as I used to tell my fourth graders when I was a teacher, if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all.
I spoke of nay-sayers in my other post. By those, I did not mean people who have valid input and suggestions that may be… Continue
