Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.
Actually I have seen the Pickens' ads on TV and have noticed the "new brand" sported by companies like BP.

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.

Record. Store. Leave. Don't take it personally. A lifetime passes quickly.
