at the Citizen Power Alliance 2010 Wind Conference
T. Boone Pickens on Alt Fuel, Energy and Politics
Outspoken oil billionaire T. Boone Pickens wowed the hundreds of attendees at yesterday's General Session meeting at the 2008 Alternative Fuels and Vehicles Conference and Expo in Las Vegas. Joined on stage by Andrew Littlefair, president and CEO of Clean Energy Fuels Corporation, Pickens delivered a keynote presentation that was insightful, humorous and highly provocative.
Pickens talked about America’s urgent need to get away from foreign oil and the sending of $600 billion to "A few friends and a hell of a bunch of enemies." and the opportunity that exists in turning to natural gas to solve the country’s immediate gasoline crisis. Pickens pointed out natural gas’ benefits of being substantially lower in harmful emissions than gasoline, its plentiful supply, and its significantly lower cost to consumers.
Pickens predicted that gasoline prices will continue to rise and that diesel fuel will never again be cheaper than gasoline.
