I think T BONE is full of it except for getting rid of dependency on foreign oil.

I'll get right this time hopefully. DUH

You should have included an answer that reflected somewhere in between, which is probably the truth. He doesn't have to do anything about anything. He could've sold his endorsment to one or the other. We might need to drill, but we need other fuel sources as well. If he does the work, why shouldn't he get paid what the work is worth?

I didn't vote because there was no option for "I don't care as who does what as long as it gets me to work everyday cheaper".

T Boone in heavily invested in a large windfarm in North Texan thats threatening to flop, he's tying to protect his investment in wind, and trying to cash in on is investments in compresses natural gas.

He's protecting his investment.....Wind may work in Texas but it will only work for about 3 months out of the year here in SC.....Nationwide wind will not work.

Wind also isn't reliable like coal, oil, or nuclear. The wind blows and then it slows down. And then it speeds up. It's not consistent. Adding a little wind is probably an okay idea, but on a large scale it's a bad idea.

Pickens is doing the same thing the corn lobby did. Taking a bad idea and making it "feasible" with massive subsidies.

He manages BP Capital, a venture capitalist fund that generally starts and funds its own projects and takes a million dollars just to get in the door from what I hear. I don't know why he made Clean Energy (gas conversion vehicle company) public but keeps everything else private like his wind farm, somethings fishy about it.

He is just as crooked as his son. He thinks his money will buy everything and it definitely bought him a university.

Maybe Pickens is full of it, maybe not. At least he is generating some debate.

Who else is out there suggesting a detailed course of action other than "check your tire pressure"?

Old "T-Bone" put his installation in the wrong place... if he located it just outside Washington DC there'd be more than enough wind to power the whol damn country!

The wind blows, and so does our government.

I think he should say how he thinks so much of America why then did he pull all his money out and is using the Ero instead so he makes his money and sends it over seas and America gets none.... so he is full of IT!
