I Love Capitalists (Smart Capitalists, Anyway)
Of course, critical to this plan is national willingness to support the changeover and to start buying wind power in large amounts from – well, likely from T. Boone Pickens, who is currently building the largest wind farm in the world in Pampa, Texas. Excellent!
It’s interesting that in pitching his plan, Boone doesn’t even mention climate change. Apparently, he’s not about to give anyone the impression that he is on some crazed, late-in-life conversion to environmentalism. Nope, Pickens is all about making money – same as always. Again, excellent!
I have long been of the view that if there is no way for someone to get rich (or in T. Boone’s case, richer) from saving the world, then the world is not going to get saved. This, belatedly, could be the start of something good.
