T. Boone Pickens: Genius or Geriatric

T. Boone Pickens | Green Electricity Is T. Boone Pickens a Genius or is he just another Geriatric billionaire speaking his mind? Maybe neither, maybe a little of both but its high-time that either way America should start listening. Boone may have a couple billion, but he still never leaves a room and doesn’t turn out the lights or turn off the TV. I’d even take a side bet that he turns up the AC when he’s not home. He earned his money working hard and gained a lot of life lessons along the way to being one of the most respected and recognized oil men in America, if not the world; or at least any part of it that has oil or natural gas or wind that could be used to generate electricity. He has been promoting natural gas and wind energy as part of the Pickens Plan for quite some time now and maybe just maybe people are now waking up and smelling the coffee that he’s been brewing. Boone say we should convert the majority of our long-haul truck transportation network to run on natural gas and not diesel, thereby lowering American energy imports of oil and increasing the use of American produced natural gas; not to mention the 1000’s and 1000’s of jobs that conversion would create. He has also worked diligently to get people to understand the value and future potential of wind power as another way to reduce our dependence on foreign oil and create jobs in America. Wow, let me see if I got this right: we can reduce our consumption of foreign oil, increase our use of domestic natural gas and wind and we can create 1000’s if not 100’s of thousands of jobs while increasing the financial and domestic security of the United States of America. I say that the next President of the United States, and the current one as well, should make Boone the Energy Czar for America and not only that, but put him in charge of the EPA. You think that second part sounds a little crazy, but let me tell you that his environmental record is astounding and he is one of the best business men and stewards of our earth that we could find in our country and we all need to start listening to him before it’s too late. He won’t be around forever and I just pray there is someone in the next generation that will grow up as well  and as vocal to start fighting to save this country. Give ’em hell Boone and start advertising more, people need to hear your message.
