Click here to email your Member of Congress in support of the NAT GAS Act (HR 1380) today!
Keep it up T.
The Pickens plan is the best solution to our energy problems that make any sense to me.
WITH ONE BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR WE COULD SUBSIDIZE THE GAS STATIONS NATIONWIDE AT THE RATE OF ABOUT $25,000 EACH TO INSTALL CNG FUELING STATIONS. THE BIG PROBLEM WE HAVE IS OUR LIBERAL GOVERNMENT THAT WANTS TO FORCE US TO CONSERVE BY PRICING US OUT OF DRIVING AND FORCING US INTO MASS TRANSIT AND RIDING BIKES. WE HAVE THE WORLDS LARGEST NATURAL GAS RESERVES AND THIS ADMINISTRATION HAS DONE ALL THEY CAN TO STOP DRILLING THROUGH CANCELLING EXISTING LEASES ON PUBLIC LANDS. I AM LIVING THIS REALITY IN WESTERN COLORADO. PRIOR TO 2008 THERE WERE A HUNDRED THOUSAND WORKERS DRILLING IN WESTERN COLORADO AND EASTERN UTAH. THE DAY OBAMA WAS SWORN IN ALL DRILLING STOPPED ON PUBLIC LANDS AND NOW THE ONLY DRILLING IS TAKING PLACE ON PRIVATE PROPERTY- PEOPLES BACK YARDS. WE LOST 70,000 JOBS OVERNIGHT.
What is wrong with these people? We are in need for another form of energy and natrual Gas fits the bill, so what’s the problem? It’s a no brianer if we have an unlimited natural gas resourse that could last two hundred years, in our own backyard and they still want to import energy? Please tell them for me that I want them to convert all Government vehicles to natural gas, and then start on fleet vehicles like 18 wheelers, taxi cabs in large cities, and other large corporate owned vehicles that can save us fuel, and money.
Boone, I am one of yur first suporters and at that time you wrer proposing a wind farm in Texas it fizzled, without any word from you to all of your suporters. Now it’s gas, which I support. My sugestions:
1. show your true intentions for helping our country by putting your money where your mouth is by personally funding part of the cost.
2. determine the true projected cost of converting 18 wheelers to natural gas by funding research on the true cost of conversions. I read that it would add 100.000 dollars on the cost of buying new trucks at the time of manufacturing. This seems too high for truckers to agree to.
If this contributes to hydrofracking, I’m against it. Sorry.
This will not contribute to water quality issues. The gas and oil wells being fracked are thousands of feet below the water table. Boone him self has said he has personally fracked over 3000 wells him self and has not had any issues with the water tables being contaminated. Infact I was t the Clean energy share holders meeting. at that meeting he had just had a meeting earlier in the week with one of the enviromenatal groups who have been at odds about fracking and now better understand what fracking is all about.
Any water which comes to the surface would be contained and cleaned before being discharged as I under stand. Anyone from the Boone camp can clarify and or correct my if I have made a comment in error of facts
