T.Boone Pickens PR Plan – "not in it for the money" ???

Market Watch interview with T. Boone Pickens on motives for “Pickens Plan”.  Huge PR budget. Are his motives largely pure or profit?

PilmerPR involvement in Green PR has a profit component and an internal motivation to be part of the environmental solution. Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) seems like an immediate way to loosen the foreign oil noose with Made in the USA non-polluting resources. But, we need to get the government and greed out of the way to succeed with the five year plan Pickens Plan.

What do you think?

    here’s an OpEd from DesNews on Pickens: http://deseretnews.com/article/1,5143,700260738,00.html

    i am not opposed to this guy making money, what i don’t care for is him or other “green” companies using government to create a market or monopoly, much like we saw with Ethanol.

    When gov’t gets in the business of picking winners and losers, consumers (i.e., the american public) and more often than not many around the world suffer (i.e., food riots because of soaring corn costs.)
