Saw an ad on TV by T. Boone Picken, a former big oil honcho, pushing an agenda of energy independence.

Claims he has a plan, and over the next months he will release more ads outlining his plan.

What's the deal? Is he angling to be a write in?

Or is he laying groundwork for an endorsement for one of the candidates?

Thought?

He's a smart guy and buying lots of air time with his own money to push a rational energy policy. Don't think he's running for anything but he'd be a far better choice than the two Bozo's who are our current presidential choices. ...Dave

Yeah, I'm a bit concerned that the next bubble is going to be in alternative energy...

Step 1: Scare the public into thinking that either the world's ecosystems are about to collapse, or that oil will be $300/bbl next month. (Done)

Step 2: Convince gov't to subsidize all manner of speculative alternative energy startups... (both major prez candidates support this)

Step 3: Buy/create said alternative energy startups. (Underway)

Step 4: IPO them into alternative energy equity bubble (you may have to wait a few months/years for this...)

Step 5: Profit!
