business leaders and entrepreneurs Biography - Information

T. Boone Pickens introduced the Pickens Plan in July of 2008, a proposal to reinvent US energy resources by promoting oil-alternatives such as natural gas, wind power, and solar energy. A major part of his plan is to replace current natural gas demands with wind power, freeing up the gas for use in other areas like automotive fuels. The Pickens Plan promotes the idea of using the central areas of the US that run from Texas up to Wisconsin and Minnesota as the primary field for collecting wind energy. This area, also known as the Great Plains (and sometimes Tornado Alley), has some of the highest potential for wind energy in the world. According to Pickens, the plan would not only promote jobs, but also create a central location for energy resources in the US due to it's equidistant location between the two coasts.

Picken Plan Pledge
From the website of the Pickens Plan, here is a sample of the pledge that T. Boone Pickens is encouraging Americans to sign and join his "army" of supporters.

Pickens Plan energy independence

T. Boone Pickens’ Energy Independence Pledge

We will no longer stand by and watch as America’s national security and economy become more
dependent on the unstable foreign nations that we rely on for nearly 70% of the oil we use each day.
We spend nearly $700 billion every year buying foreign oil, which represents the greatest transfer of
wealth in the history of mankind.

The new President and the 111th Congress need to enact an energy plan that reduces our foreign oil
dependence by at least 30% within ten years.

This plan must include proven American technology and resources; the development of new energy
sources; and the expansion and modernization of the national electrical grid to transport renewable
energy to homes and businesses.

Delaying any further means tacit support for continuing America’s addiction to foreign oil.

I join with T. Boone Pickens and his army of supporters in calling for an Energy
Independence Plan to be enacted within the first 100 days of the new administration.

We’ve got all these politicians talking about better health care and what all, but believe me, we’re not going to have the money to take care of sick people.. or anyone else as far as I’m concerned.. if we don’t fix our energy problem right now. I’ve got an idea what to do. It might not be a perfect idea, but hell, none of my best ideas have been perfect.

Given the current state of our finances, we could sure use a quarter of a trillion dollars a year recycling through the U.S. economy rather than through the economies of Iran, Russia, and Venezuela.

We are now spending half a trillion dollars on foreign oil, importing 62 percent of the oil we use, and we haven’t had the leadership in D.C. to do anything about it. We've got to move to other sources of energy. But we’ve gotten way behind, and will continue to pay the fiddler. It’s not a good future.
