There is a lot of misinformation being spread about Obama and his energy plans over at PickensPlan. The setup is to advanced T Boone Picken's project to A: build a humongous windmill farm in Texas and B: convert trucks to run on natural gas. The rationale is that oil man Boone sees we can not continue to import gas. We must move to renewables, with natural gas vehicles as the bridge to the future, until the renewables are up and running.
Whatever you might think of Pickens, and I am not a fan, the plan does make sense. And he is going ahead with his own money to build the windfarm. There are upwards of 60,000 people using the forums at:
And there are some hard rightwing people pushing very heavily against Obama. There needs to be a response from knowlegable Obama supporters. Posting diaries there promoting Obama's energy plan would be really helpfull. Most people who post there seem fairly apolitical and low information. But there are a lot of them.
