Boone Pickens Back Again
I've talked about Boone Pickens quite a bit here on the blog, and if you are familiar with him, prepare to be. He's going to be hitting the airwaves with his energy campaign, and I love it. Since our politicians aren't going to do anything about our energy problem, he's taking it directly to the people. The idea of his thesis is to take the large percentage of natural gas we use to generate electricity, and get that from wind and solar. Then we can use the natural gas, which is cleaner than gasoline and found in the US, to power our vehicles. His company, Clean Energy Fuels Corp. (CLNE) is providing the infrastructure. Although the stock is pretty speculative to this point, this campaign could get the next president on board with incentives, and that could make his stock explode.
Here's the full story on his campaign from USA Today.
Here's the website for Pickens' new campaign.
And, here's a good video of him explaining the energy situation.
