The opportunist natural gas man apparently thinks this is a good moment to bury coal. No Boone, we haven’t forgotten about the bogus Pickens Plan.
The Deseret News reports:
Legendary energy developer T. Boone Pickens told a Western Governors Association audience Friday that climate change may well be real and needs to be addressed.
“Let’s do what we can,” Pickens, one of the keynote speakers on the opening day of the annual WGA meeting that continues through Sunday, said in response to a question about climate change.
“Be aware of it, and get started on accepting climate change. But it can run off the scale on cost. Be careful about cost,” advised the billionaire chairman and CEO of the Dallas-based energy hedge fund BP Capital.
He said while it’s hard to convince a geologist like himself that climate change is real, the threat can’t be ignored. Pickens, 85, urged dealing with climate change now to avoid regrets later, even though its effects are not being felt as quickly as some have feared.
