I was listening to Pickens' support for NG & his tales of his early days in fracking He admitted he was puzzled why there was now trouble with fracking in OH & PA, though I had read that even in that politician's state (OK?) they had earthquake problems (CURIOUS OMISSION) That on top of groundwater mismanagement issues PICKENS HINTED when he was doing it in the 'old days', they didn't get as much gas out of the site as he thinks he should have, possibly alluding to newer technology now being different I really wonder if the NEW TECH being used & the focus on GETTING EVERY BIT AS THE TECH WILL FORCE LOOSE, is why there's this puzzlement from people who want domestic energy but HAVE GHASTLY RESULTS Someone try the old way !

Pickens is a frickin commie. He is all about himself and Obumma. He made a mint on Obumma's green energy scam.

I am no fan of Pickens he does have some good ideas but how did or does he make a mint on the green energy scams?
The effort by Pickens to convince the trucking to convert to NG I think is a good direction to go. If a tenth of the stim spent by the gov. was used to install the infrastructure for NG along the major interstate Hwy.s we would be below 20% of imported Oil.

I use to invest in Rail Roads and made money doing so. I learned that mkost of them are a much cheaper means of transportation than trucking. If our government spent some money on increasing our tracks, and our depots, for distributing the commoditties being transported, we could take a lot of trucks off the road. They would have much shorter distances to haul their cargo. This would save millions of gallons of fuel each year.

He makes a mint off of them because he gets taxpayer money from the government for them.

I don't know if Pickens is an honest man or not, but I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. I will not criticize him for making a lot of money in the 'ol bidness'. I think he made good sense when he proposed greater use of natural gas. It's much cheaper that gasoline, burns much cleaner, cars and light trucks can run just fine on it with minor modifications to fuel tanks, fuel lines and carburation. In and around major metropolitan areas, infrastructure exists to pipe natural gas to filling stations. In outlying areas, NG can be stored in large storage tanks such as those used for storing propane gas, used to heat homes in rural areas. Conversion from gasoline to natural gas would create a lot of jobs as well.

Long ago most of us came to the conclusion that the Obama Administration was waging a war on the fossil fuel industry.  Although the President denies this, of course, the evidence is overwhelming.  As Steve Forbes said, this Administration "has the most anti-oil-and-gas record in U.S. history." 

Need more proof?  Watch the video clip below in which Al Armendariz, the Region VI Administrator for the EPA brags that the agency's "general philosophy" regarding enforcement of energy regulation is to "crucify" and "make examples" of oil and gas companies. 

By the way, EPA Region VI includes the energy rich...
