I am 100% behind this.
Please help spread the word.
Pickens said, “I am calling on the next President and Congress to take immediate action in the first 100 days of the new Administration to do whatever is necessary to make this plan a reality,” said Mr. Pickens. “We are asking the American public to get behind this plan and to help us reduce our dangerous dependency on foreign oil. This has to be the number one priority in the country starting today and that’s what this campaign is all about. I am also calling for a monthly report on the reduction in foreign oil imports and a monthly report on progress in the development of natural gas vehicles in this country.
“If we are successful, and I certainly believe we can be, we will look back and say that we saw the mess we created and took decisive actions to fix these problems. We will have drastically cut imported oil, which will mean less money going to unstable countries around the world. We will have cheaper transportation and power in the country for the foreseeable future. We will have a better environment. We will jump start economic development in rural areas of the country. We will help the auto industry. We will be stronger global partners and take control of our destiny. I am excited to be a part of this and will do whatever it takes to make this plan a reality.”
