Interested, I visited T. Boone Picken’s website to review the much advertised energy plan. While at the site I signed up for the newsletter updates. And today, around 6:30PM, I rec’d an invitation to participate in what the folks promoting Pickens’ energy plan hope is the largest internet rally for energy independence in history; scheduled at 10PM Eastern time, 30 minutes before the debate ends. The rally is featuring Carl Pope, the Executive Director of the Sierra Club and Pickens on video.
“Your chance to show Senators McCain and Obama the we mean business when it comes to getting off of foreign oil.”
Here’s a copy of the landing page from the email link rec’d:
The second Presidential debate will take place on October 7 at 9:00 pm EDT. T. Boone Pickens and Sierra Club Executive Director Carl Pope will be hosting an online rally at PickensPlan.com during and after the debate. The rally will feature live video from Pickens Plan HQ in Dallas and you will have an opportunity to submit questions and comments about America’s energy future. We will be delivering a copy of your questions and comments to both Presidential candidates, so don’t miss this opportunity to lend your voice to the call for American energy independence! RSVP today! (landing page).

In other news concerning Pickens’ Energy Plan:
U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga., pledged Tuesday (Oct. 7, 2008) to push for congressional passage of an energy independence plan being pushed by billionaire Texas oilman T. Boone Pickens.
Chambliss said Pickens’ proposals to develop new domestic sources of energy while expanding proven American technology share much in common with bipartisan energy legislation he is sponsoring in the Senate.
“Boone’s got great ideas,” Chambliss said during a meeting with Atlanta Business Chronicle editors and reporters. “He knows I agree with him.”
