If you have not already had a chance to check out the Pickens Plan, have a look. It is worth the time to visit the site and watch the short video (linked below). Regardless of your impression of T. Boone Pickens, his past politics, or any skepticism you may have about motivation, it is worth your time to begin thinking about the energy issue, and this is a good place to start. There is actually a little there for just about everyone, including natural gas producers, hybrid, electric, and alternative fuel automobile makers, solar, wind farmers, and electricity producers. Both green and conventional cleaner burning sources are considered. Even crude oil will still have a presence as we make changes in how energy is used over the next few decades. I applaud Mr. Pickens for at least coming up with a plan for people to begin discussing and debating. As Pickens states, we need to settle on something and start marching in the same direction. Time is no longer on our side.
