The University of Alabama Crimson White
Last Monday evening, entrepreneur and alternative energy proponent T. Boone Pickens visited Tuscaloosa to promote his alternative energy movement. The “Pickens Plan” is a coordinated, comprehensive plan to use natural gas to reduce U.S. dependence on foreign oil, especially the oil we buy from OPEC.
The major thrust of Pickens Plan is to convert our commercial transport from diesel fuel to natural gas. The U.S.A. has…

It is time we got back on track at the Pickens Plan. T. Boones vision was bring us together, but we seem to be all over the map.
I seem to recall some scriptural refernce to waging war that advises the consideration of cost associated with such endeavors. The following URL references current cost for projects that are currently under construction and due for completion.…Continue

TUSCALOOSA | T. Boone Pickens brought his crusade to end America's dependence on foreign oil to the University of Alabama on Monday night with a simple message — it does not matter what technology and fuels are embraced as long as they tap America's resources.
“What you don't want to do is trade off Saudi oil and end up with Chinese batteries,” he said in response to a student's question, which…

First off I wanted to say that I really enjoyed your speech at the University of Alabama. I would like to address a question to Mr. Pickens brought up by my group.
Our question is, "Why do you think it is necessary for people to buy into your plan?"
Has the government Stimulus Package had any perceivable effects in making the Pickens Plan a reality?

Dear Mr. Pickens,
I really enjoyed your speech at the University of Alabama. What is the total estimated cost (in both the private and the public sectors) of converting the infrastructure to support natural gas vehicles? You said in the question-and-answer session that the cost of improving the infrastructure would be off set by the creation of new jobs and the decrease in dependence in foreign oil, however, what would be a reasonable figure? Thanks for your time!

I have been pretty quite about the political aspects of PP during the past few months. In fact, it seemed to me that the whole plan got derailed about a year ago. If the idea was to get a consensus of Americans, we failed.
What it appears we have accomplished is to further the energy industry's disregard for our wellbeing and wet their appetite for obscene profits. Consider the following site;…Continue
