Hey, Army. 

Listen to this!  The Pickens Plan is having some real impact.
This morning, Randall Stephenson, who is the Chairman and CEO of
AT&T made a very important announcement.
AT&T is going to replace 17 percent of its fleet – which is one of the largest in America – with vehicles running on natural gas and other renewable fuels.   They are going to purchase 8,000 truck chassis built by an U.S. automaker and then they’ll work with domestic suppliers to convert those chassis to run on natural gas.
A big portion of AT&T’s fleet is going to domestic natural gas and is using vehicles built in America to do it.  AT&T will also be working with natural gas suppliers – domestic natural gas suppliers – to build the fueling facilities they will need for these vehicles.
AT&T is also going to replace some 7,100 cars which are running on gasoline with cars using battery and other alternative sources.  When this is done, AT&T will have one of the largest alternative fueled fleets in history.
I believe this is going to be a big momentum play.  When other fleet operators put their transportation teams on this, you’re going to see a major shift away from imported diesel and onto domestic natural gas.
This announcement gives the Pickens Plan Army a great push going into the next few weeks when Congress will begin to act on energy legislation.  To build on this momentum, and to make sure Congress and the Obama Administration know we want a plan now,
we’re going to be holding a Virtual March on April 1-3.  Along with our Virtual March partners, we are going to rally Americans to deliver the message to Congress that the time is now to put a plan in place and to end America’s staggering addiction to foreign oil.
There has never been a Virtual March of this magnitude and we are certain it will leave a strong impression on Washington. The time to act is now!

    Hey my friend, sorry it’s been so long…once again, I’m not being notified when people update…I don’t know if I’ll ever undertand that. I look for the day when we can actually be not only earth friendly but wallet friend…hope that day comes soon.

    This doesn’t make me trust AT&T with their "special room" for the NSA and FBI, but I’ll accept an improvement in out world from (almost) wherever it comes. Further, I think T. Boone is pretty much right on in his thinking about how to transition to cleaner energy.Peace, Doc
