This is Boone Pickens baby! He wants all trucks to be transformed to Natural gas. Viola! The new energy bill has that provision and it is to be unveiled on MONDAY.
Reid says this bill has a real good chance of passing, as you know, Natural gas burns clean...
Join me over the jump for discusion:
I have seen Mr. Pickens on tv saying that such a transformantion would save us 100s of thousands of barrels of oil per year. This is wonderful, that and the President is transfroming the federal government into a more eco friendly government(like energy efficient buildings and hybrid government vehicles)...
Anyways, Here is the article on the legislation with other goodies:
Yes, it will also have oil regs in it, as well as credits for energy efficiency retrofit for your home. As far as the Senate goes, I will take it, and be happy.
Reid says it has a very good chance at passing before break. This is ONLY part of a 4 part energy plan, the last being what we all want, carbon taxing!
The latter may have to be done in a lame duck session, after the midterms(per john kerry).
Still, saving all that oil is an outstanding first step and it needs to be recognized as such!
