I read something interesting on MSNBC.com this week about T. Boone Pickens, multimillionaire oilman from texas, that has a plan to get us off of oil by utilizing wind and solar power on a massive scale. He has a plan to utilize the wind corridor stretching from Canada to northern texas. and then shift that energy out to the nation from there. Fascinating stuff. He thinks that the natural gas that is now used for energy generation can then be shifted to transportation needs getting us off of oil to a great degree. I was skeptical (I know, shocker) but then I was watching NBC news today and the guy had bought TV time on National television to promote the plan. There is a website (actually, a whole slew of them). This guy is on the environmental movement bigtime. He realizes that oil is like crack and we're giving money to a dealer that doesn't like us very much. I guess time will tell but it is good to see that since our politicians can't put anything together like an organized plan to provide secure, reliable, energy infrastucture that is both clean and renewable, this old oil dude can.
