Texas oil man T. Boone Pickens will bring his plan to cut America’s demand for foreign oil to the northwest Iowa town of Le Mars next week. His town hall meeting on the "Pickens Plan" will be held at 3 P-M next Thursday at the Le Mars convention center.
In similar town hall meetings around the nation, Pickens has said his proposal would reduce America’s estimated $700 billion annual dependence on foreign oil imports by greatly expanding the use of wind energy and freeing up natural gas for use as a transportation fuel.
The plan unveiled on July 8th calls for replacing more than one-third of imported energy and saving more than $230 billion a year. Pickens’ town hall meeting in Le Mars is free and open to the public.
