We’ve been following T. Boone Pickens public relations campaign around the Pickens Plan for energy independence. On September 17th, he joined Sean Hannity on his conservative talk show to talk about The Plan. Have a listen. Does Sean get it? I’m not convinced Hannity is a Pickens convert.
Pickens thinks that to provide rapid relief from our dangerous dependence on foreign oil we should transition the U.S. big-rig trucking industry to domestic compressed natural gas (CNG). He says transitioning one million trucks in five years is doable and will reduce our diesel consumption by 40%. What do you think? Is the PR plan working? Do you believe Pickens?Share
