T.Boone Pickens

At the GTS today. An tough act to follow…


T.Boone quotes:


“I don’t know any people in Washington that understand global energy and how it impacts us.”


“Natural gas is the only resource America has that can replace diesel.”


“Obama has said it four times – that in 10 years we will import no oil from the Middle East or Venezuela. If it were me, I’d add Africa to the list.”


“We have the resources. We can fix it. The only thing missing for the past 40 years is leadership. It’s a war without guns.”


“I can make it to the finish line, but I’m not so sure about my grandchildren.”


Responding to Q&A on perseverance:


“You will not find a person who has drilled more dry holes than me. Not one person. But I rank in the top 10 of those who have found the most oil.”
