Oil man Pickens seeks ‘army’ to back energy plan

TOPEKA, Kansas (Reuters) – Energy tycoon T. Boone Pickens said on Wednesday he is creating an “army” of business leaders and mainstream Americans to lobby for his plan to revamp U.S. energy policy in favour of wind power and natural gas over imported oil.

Pickens said he hopes to break a political stalemate on U.S. energy policy, calling Wednesday’s move by Republicans in Congress blocking tax incentives for alternative energy “just sad” and an example of the lack of leadership on energy.

“We have to put the pressure on” political leaders, Pickens said in an interview with Reuters. “They are going to have to, one, recognize the magnitude of the problem, and they are going to have to come up with some kind of solution.”
