Is Pickens' plan a physical possibility? It calls for investing in enough wind turbines to provide 20% of the nation's energy and reducing oil imports by a third in 10 years. (This would eliminate much of the need for foreign oil.) It seems to me that if such a plan were at all possible, it would be worth doing at almost any costs. Combined with conservation measures (enacted now so that they'd have an effect in 10 years), the plan would give us a giant window of time to plan long-term infrastructure changes. I only wonder if it's actually possible. And if it is, why aren't we doing it?
