  • T Boone and the Senate Natural Resources Committee

    T Boone was the start witness on C-SPAN. He talked about his great view of the next 15 yrs.

    * Use renewables like wind and solar to generate electricty.
    * Take the natural gas from the old electric generators and use it to replace
    The 700 billion dollars a year we pay for gasoline.

    Said current natural gas is 750 Trillion ft3 and with shale we can double it to 1.5 heck_of_big_number

    My fav. quotes:
    "We're
    getting beat by the French in nuclear power, and by the world in natural
    gas vehicles. We should be leaders, not laggards."

    "I have a mission ladies and gentlemen. That mission is to try to explain
    what I've just explained here. And no matter how many times I explain it
    nobody argues with me about it. Which is interesting because I wish
    somebody would jump up and say you're wrong and let me show you where
    you're wrong. And nobody does that. Everybody says, well, that sounds like
    a good idea.

    So, I don't know whether it's a good idea or whether they don't understand."

    He also said that GM has 16 platforms for CNG and NONE are sold in the US.
