  • We are supposedly the Saudi Arabia of natural gas. It seems that the biggest of America's problems could be solved if natural gas became the primary source of energy here. We would be energy independent and free. You can't be free when you are dependent on the very people who wish you harm. We are dependent for resources and debt service so,we are captive.

     

    Many years ago when we used our own resources there were many unknowns,many risks that can be managed and are necessary to achieve the goal. Imagine no drilling for oil,no risk taking,no invention,no creativity. We would never have grown to provide the best quality of life in the world.

     

    I know politics has in fact turned all of the above into a bankrupt country which has turned the American Dream into the American Nightmare for most.

     

    Do you honestly foresee your industry providing fuel for transport as well as the jobs,the industry to empower a second industrial Revolution before it's too late?

     

    There have been and are some risks but so were there risks in every other meaningful discovery that kept America strong,provided jobs,created security and empowered our quality of life.

     

    Capitalism is all about people like you. Can you realistically get Natural Gas to be the freedom maker of Boone Pickens in time? Will you be able to get past the politics and regulations in time? When if at all will you get your invention and genius to actually be what the oil and gas industry amongst many others were for 250 years?

  • I believe this country is best served by a consortium of energy sources. All of the present plus where applicable any other useful source whether it be gas, wind, sun, cow-manure, etc.
    But, 'where is the money going to come from' to make the necessary changes (improvements?) to convert this nation from Oil to other?
    Our leaders and others seem to think that it's the governments responsibility. That a load of Bull. Our government is on the verge of going bankrupt and collapse. Our printing presses are running out of ink! There is no money there, for whatever reason. So who is going to finance these changes? America can't! Will China, Russia, Europe? Don't think so!
    Obviously, it will take time to convert even if we come up with the money. What are we going to do during the interim?
