Oil tycoon T. Boone Pickens' TV commercials blasted the airwaves in 2008 with his big idea to get America off foreign oil imports: natural gas and wind energy.
Two years later, let’s just make that natural gas.
Since the billionaire’s plans for the world’s largest wind farm fell apart in the Texas Panhandle, Pickens has edited his much-hyped “Pickens Plan” to focus primarily on his other big business interest: natural gas.
No money in wind? Was it all hyped to begin with? Or was there to many road blocks put in front?
Many liberals hate windmills b/c they kill birds and cause them to alter migration patterns.
And drilling for natural gas? Krist they hate that here in PA already.
Nuclear powered cars anyone?
