We need to get off OPEC oil now, and we have the resources to do it, says T. Boone Pickens. Things are going fall apart in the Middle East, and soon. Saudi Arabia is on the brink, and at 9.7M bpd in production, if they come off line we'll be looking at oil prices around $300 - $500 a barrel. That risk, plus the trillions of dollars in cost savings we would get from pulling our military forces out of the region, Pickens says, more than justifies ramping up our own production at home.
