The Pickens Plan

Hope that everyone had a great labor day weekend! I certainly did.

One of the biggest stories in the blogosphere from last weeks Democratic Convention was when Sierra Club Executive director Carl Pope, Center for American Progress head John Podesta, and oil billionaire T. Boone Pickens sat down to discuss our energy future.

Carl put it best in his post about the event.

When an oilman and environmentalists agree -- you know the momentum for real change is building.

Pickens plan - titled, fittingly, the "Pickens Plans" calls for massive investments in wind energy and for the use of natural gas as a transition fuel to the clean energy economy. While we don't agree with Pickens on everything -- we do agree with the elements of his plan and his overarching goals.

You can help - send a letter to the editor to you local paper calling for action towards a Clean Energy Economy, following the example of Pickens. The tide is growing for action.
