via Twitter Web Client in reply to jimwenz

Why don’t we have a bullet train? Our oil has been cheap in the past. Our growth has been stunted in the past by cheap oil.

via Twitter Web Client

When Boone was in China last year he rode on a bullet train.

via Twitter Web Client

Germans are ahead of the U.S. on wind. French are ahead on nuclear power.

via Twitter Web Client

French too. They do 80& nuclear. We only do 20%.

via Twitter Web Client

somebody gets up and always asks “do you know the wind doesn’t blow all the time?” Answer: Look at Germany. They don’t even have good wind!

via Twitter Web Client

$700 billion is going out of our country now If we could recapture just 20% of that per year via wind, that’s a huge influx into our economy

via Twitter Web Client

Boone is building a wind farm now in Pampa, Texas

via Twitter Web Client

200 megawatts of energy in Sweetwater, town is now over 12,000 in population, growing. Was a typical rural town prior to this wind project

via Twitter Web Client

Sweetwater, Texas, is my model - Boone has a model for everything I do - “I don’t do a lot of R&D, I am too old.” :-)

via Twitter Web Client

Look at gov’t study from April 2007 (1 year ago) - showed the wind corridor is from Texas to the Canadian border

via Twitter Web Client

Natural gas can play a big role in helping get us out of this situation

via Twitter Web Client

Arabs in the middle east selling us oil haven’t done this to us. It’s our own fault. We’ve chosen to buy this oil and be dependent on it.

via Twitter Web Client

coal, natural gas, hydro, biofuels, wind, solar, geothermal

via Twitter Web Client

now in the U.S. we have just 5 billion barrels of oil production per day. Boone is now explaining our different energy source options…

via Twitter Web Client

Boone supports US drilling on US land, but that won’t solve this problem…

via Twitter Web Client

Boone says there is no way we can fix this $700 billion importing problem by just drilling in more places

via Twitter Web Client

we are paying $700 billion per year on foreign oil now, and we are importing approximately 70% of that oil today in the U.S.

via Twitter Web Client

Our imported oil costs almost $700 billion per year now…

via Twitter Web Client

If we keep drifting as we are now, we’ll be importing close to 80% of our oil and we could be paying up to $200 per barrel…

via Twitter Web Client

We are now at about 67-68% of foreign oil importing…

via Twitter Web Client

By the 1st gulf war the U.S. was importing 42% of our oil from foreign sources

via Twitter Web Client

@pickensplan the webcast is working fine on my mac now :-)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to pickensplan

World oil production now is at 85 million barrels per day.

via Twitter Web Client

Boone is “out of the race” for Presidential advocacy - he is focused on this energy issue from a nonpartisan position

via Twitter Web Client

Boone started this campaign on July 8th.

via Twitter Web Client

fix previous tweet: Honda natural gas CAR

via Twitter Web Client

Boone retrofitted a Cadillac in 1991 for natural gas. He now has a Honda natural gas company.

via Twitter Web Client

When I try to sell something I try to make it as simple as you can. That is why with trucking I’m proposing buying new natural gas.

via Twitter Web Client

Answer: You CAN retrofit, you do get a federal rebate or tax credit, and a state credit.

via Twitter Web Client

Question from the audience: What about EPA restriction preventing you from retrofitting a car for natural gas?

via Twitter Web Client

Big oil is working for their shareholders, and I understand that. But we can beat that kind of lobbying.

via Twitter Web Client

Then when I go to Washington I’ll be a lot more powerful. This must be done at OUR level. We can fix this.We can fix big oil-I know big oil.

via Twitter Web Client

They way I can be more powerful is if you’ll join me on http://pickensplan.com and sign the pledge.

via Twitter Web Client

When I go to Washington leaders are very respectful and they listen, but when I leave nothing happens.

via Twitter Web Client

Boone: I got the same question in Fargo, North Dakota.

via Twitter Web Client

Question from the audience: What do we do about our politicians being bribed by special interests?

via Twitter Web Client

Now Boone is taking Q&A.

via Twitter Web Client

Why has this not been done in the past? We didn’t have the leadership? We didn’t have the public support? And we HAD cheap oil.

via Twitter Web Client

when you buy a new one, you won’t be able to buy a diesel - buy a natural gas (or give financial incentives for NG trucks)

via Twitter Web Client

as trucking firms replace their fleets, they would replace with natural gas trucks

via Twitter Web Client

GM produces 17(?) natural gas vehicles but now they are all produced outside the US.

via Twitter Web Client

remember how fast ethanol happened? it will work if the President says we’re doing it, and Detroit knows it is coming, we can do it

via Twitter Web Client

this is as critical as a WAR (energy fight) - fortunately we are not fighting it with guns [MY THOUGHT: IRAQ?]

via Twitter Web Client

Swift changes its trucking fleet every 2 1/2 years. If we have a leader in Washington that puts the priority on wind and energy…

via Twitter Web Client

Diesel, gasoline or natural gas is the only source we have now that can move an 18 wheeler.

via Twitter Web Client

Boone is not sure McCain or Obama are focused on this at this point. A battery won’t move anything big like a truck now.

via Twitter Web Client

Where Boone wants this natural gas to go is to TRUCKS. [THIS IS GREAT. HE IS ABSOLUTELY RIGHT. WE HAVE TO CHANGE FUEL PATTERNS FOR TRUCKING]

via Twitter Web Client

Plan is to reduce $700 billion on foreign oil down by 38% within 10 years. At that level we can really help ourselves.

via Twitter Web Client

Boone is advocating using cheaper, cleaner, abundant, and U.S. owned natural gas for transportation fuel

via Twitter Web Client
