Looks like Boone Pickens is eating Crow today after his statement that oil would not fall below $100.

Last I checked today it fell to the $95 range.

With someone that accurate maybe people should be leary about his energy plan.

Yeah, and the DOW lost 500 amid more finaclial fiascos!

At this rate, we'll all be able to afford the gas to get to the unemployment office!

Pickens was wrong- 90% of the opinions I have read have been that oil will go to 60-70 and stay.

Thats still bad news for the Saudis who know that above 45$ alternative energies are profitable.

There is a story floating around about Picken's Plan being a plot straight out of a Hollywood movie. He got lawmakers to give him his own township so he could use eminent domain under the guise of this wind farm idea to run cables but really use the cable path to sell Aquifer water to major cities in the South.

I really don't know much about Boone Pickens. The only thing I've seen is his TV commercials, I thought he was a politician or something. Now that his name has came up again I took a look and know a little more about the guy.

Probably so, but last time i checked he has been right more than he has been wrong and he has more money than everyone on this board combined to prove it.
