Pickens aside, who I assume is a patriot along the lines of H Ross Perot (who I voted for), I thought that all of the talk by the oil companies about alternative energy sources was just that, a boat-load of talk.
I don't feel sorry for Joe Blow American. This whole energy mess was obvious back in the early '70s but it took 4 1/2 buck gas PLUS global warming PLUS the loss of the polar caps to get people to start cutting back on wasting hydrocarbons. Let the rich get richer if that's what it takes to get the job done. Ah, the headlines. "Paris Hilton saves planet Earth!". Who'd a thought.
The good news ... it's only a life sentence. You eventually leave this planet of idiots.
