Energy Guru Boone Pickens Discusses How Real American Energy Independence Is
Posted by: CanadianValue (IP Logged)

Pickens does not think it is possible that the U.S. can be energy independent by 2020. What he does think is that if the U.S. gets together with Mexico and Canada (as suppliers) then North America could be energy independent.

Pickens sees the government as being the main barrier to achieving this goal. Pickens thinks it is ridiculous that the U.S. as the biggest consumer of energy in the world does not have a long-term energy plan.

He notes that adoption of natural gas as a fuel for the American trucking fleet would be a major step towards removing reliance on OPEC.
