In Preperation For Thanksgiving
It's time to kill the Turkey,
Just go out and get your Ax
Just grab that old bird
by its head
And give it a couple whacks.

Last year there was a television commercial showing a mother driving her teenage son to what appeared to be his first day at a new school. As they pulled up in front and saw a gathering of other students standing around the main entrance she asked him if he would rather be dropped off down the block. He said that right out front was fine...she wished him good luck... and confidently he strode past his new classmates. He was greeted by the approving… Continue

I have tried to contact Barach Obama re my almost 70 years of Manufacturing Technology experience as a researcher and author that might be valuable to the transition team but since I am in Canada and my postal code does not fit into the US postal system my message does not go through. Is there any way that I can connect with someone on the transition team by email to get my offer of assistance through to them? I would be pleased to share my offer with T. Boone Pickens if you could supply me… Continue

Like you, I vigorously oppose subsidizing bad management decisions. What I think we have here is a golden opportunity. It is time for Detroit to change directions and Congress (as representatives of THE PEOPLE) should call the shots. Detroit has been lying to us year after year. They kept saying it would take 20 years to produce efficient electric vehicles. That always was a LIE! We need to tell the car companies that top management has to go and the Board of Directors… Continue

I hope Tampa Bay area Pickens Plan group members are able to meet with us on Thursday, December 4th at 7 pm. It will be held at our house (Mike and myself), and if it arrives in time, will include a viewing of Kilowatt Ours (if the attendees would like to see it), an energy plan proposed by KilowattOurs.org. I think it's good to see what others are thinking about our current energy situation and what they're mobilizing themselves to do about it. If anything, we hope to have a relaxed discussion… Continue

After months of emailing Gov. Beebe I received the following response:
Dear Ms. Howard:

Because of long-standing policy guidelines, the Governor does not answer mail electronically, but he has seen your message and appreciates your input. He has asked me to reply to your concerns regarding compressed natural gas (CNG). Please accept my apologies for the delay.
The Governor is working hard to put… Continue

Hybrid Vehicles Are Popular, but Making Them Profitable Is a Challenge

Many members of Congress believe they know what the car company of the future should look like.
"A business model based on gas -- a gas-guzzling past -- is unacceptable," Sen. Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) said last week. "We need a business model based on cars of the future, and we already know what that future… Continue

Just as the world seemed poised to combat global warming more aggressively, the economic slump and plunging prices of coal and oil are upending plans to wean businesses and consumers from fossil fuel.
From Italy to China, the threat to jobs, profits and government tax revenues posed by the financial crisis has cast doubt on commitments to cap emissions or phase out polluting factories.
Automakers, especially… Continue

About 10 years ago my father-in-law purchased a car for my wife. It was a1978 Dodge Aspen. It was also the last thing father did for daughter before he went to heaven. So you can understand a sentimental attachment to the car.
This saga begins many years ago. Back when California still gave us print outs of our cars tests. Now those of us who can read the numbers could tell where most problems were and fixed them. This circumvented the state sponsored repair system. That means money… Continue

Choosing a Texan of the Year is like choosing your favorite child — easy if one kid favors your side of the family and is on the drill team. However, with the possible exception of T. Boone Pickens, none of my nominees is a former drill team member.
It will be tough to follow last year’s winner. The 2007 Dallas Morning News Texan of the Year was “The Illegal Immigrant.” Coincidentally, the city of Farmers Branch banned sashes and… Continue

Right now the opportunities within the green energy sector are nearly limitless for would be entrepreneurs and I know that many of the members of the Plan are involved in trying to capitalize on the anticipated boom in some way. That being the case I thought that I would share some ideas with anyone who might want to take advantage of them. The energy revolution needs to be built from the ground up not the top down and everyone who reads this is equally able to take advantage of that… Continue

Probably one of the most interesting designs for air engines has come from designer Angelo De Pietro. This rotary design is the best I have seen, and the only issue is the speed to get to market. The company, EngineAir was established in 2000, and we still see very little in the market place. With pressure tank and structural technologies finally reaching affordable prices, combined with this rotary engine technology, we could be looking at a real winner. Take a look at the website… Continue

The worldwide economic crisis is prompting a growing number of countries to back away from pledges to cut greenhouse gas emissions and invest in clean energy, just a week before the start of talks in Poland on a new worldwide climate change treaty.
In the United States, some business groups are calling on President-elect Barack Obama to move cautiously in tackling global warming, saying that a too aggressive response could… Continue

The Arkansas Public Service Commission has approved a request from Arkansas Oklahoma Gas Corp. of Fort Smith for a natural gas vehicle tariff, which will allow AOG "to provide natural gas service to customers for the exclusive purpose of fueling natural gas powered vehicles with natural gas," according to a statement released Friday from the PSC.
Under the approved tariff filing, AOG will be able to provide its… Continue

There’s something in the wind.
It’s news, and the news is this: T. Boone Pickens, celebrated author of the Pickens Plan, is coming to Oklahoma City next month to deliver a keynote address at Oklahoma’s inaugural conference on wind development.
The conference, organizers say, is to address both challenges and possibilities of wind energy.
"Wind projects are emerging across our state,” said David Fleischaker,… Continue

ALBANY, N.Y. - Wind development in New York has hit a bit of turbulence.
The nationwide financial crisis has put the brakes on a wind farm under construction in northern New York and another developer has aborted possible projects in eastern and central New York after trouble securing land. And wind energy companies are now being asked to abide by a code of ethics by Attorney General Andrew Cuomo _ the upshot… Continue

From the Delta Democrat Times:
"The role natural gas will play in America's energy future - and particularly in Mississippi - was discussed by David Gates, president of Atmos Energy's Mississippi Division, at the Greenville Kiwanis Club Thursday.
“More natural gas is used to produce electricity in Mississippi than any other source,” said Gates. “But we will need every kind of energy we can find and the most efficient ways of using them.”… Continue
