T. Boone Pickens on CBS 60 Minutes

T. Boone Pickens on CBS 60 Minutes

( If you've been watching television lately, chances are you've seen a white-haired Texas oil man promising he can save America from foreign oil by using wind power, solar energy and domestic natural gas. He's T. Boone Pickens, and he's playing the role of pioneer and provocateur, in a massive national campaign warning of an energy crisis as dire as the current financial one....As 60 Minutes contributor Charlie Rose reports, Pickens says he has a solution - a plan that might sound unrealistic in the current economic climate - but one he hopes will be good for the country and good for Boone Pickens...

Man On A Mission

The oil and gas maven is on a mission to lessen America’s dependence on foreign oil. Charlie Rose reports.


My take on the 60 Minute report is this... It was an overall good report about Mr. Pickens and his vision of our Countries energy future needs and how we must achieve energy independence.

However as one would expect... CBS News Charlie Rose did do his best to make this a Dem issue and tried to spin the issue of drilling for offshore oil as a no go.

Sadly... Mr. Pickens let him get away with it.

Energy Independence is not a Democrat or a Republican Issue. This is an American Issue. This is a Bipartisan Issue that all Americans should be part of and 100% behind.

In short... I support, in part, the
‘PickensPlan’. But I fully support Senator John McCain’s plan and that would be an ‘All Of The Above Energy Solution’.
