Oil Magnate Sees Value in Wind

Even the oil-inclined are seeing the value in wind energy, with magnate T. Boone Pickens quickly becoming the public face of a new initiative to lower US energy dependence. You can check out his interview with Katie Couric (note: only half is about energy; the other half concerns his political contribution history) or his website PickensPlan.com.

While NC Sierra Club isn't prepared to comment on all of his proposals, there are a few things well worth a nod:

  1. He's in it to make a profit. What's more, his venture will supply 4,000 kw from a corridor capable of producing 400,000 kw. What to take from this: even captains of industry can see a new market (untapped) that is capable of supplying 20% of the nation's energy by 2020.
  2. Wind is clean.

  1. Its very interesting and great to know that the oil is prepared by wind energy, with magnate T. Boone Pickens .Katie has done a very great job by inventing this new system.
