    Old news Wickster, he wants to sell his water to the Dallas area. I think he thinks we are all stupid. My Mom’s dad always told her (and this was back in the 30s,)”if you wnat to be really rich, own water”. Now he is trying to convince us and Congress that wind and alternative power is the way, does he own the wind? And all of this coming from the quintessential OIL MAN. Ya right Boone!!

    Who does he think he is??? He investing tons of his own money and time and he expects to make money! Where does he think he’s living, in America?? He should be doing this for free and WE should be making the money!

    I think you missed the point, GMOM. If he wants to build a pipeline and sell water to Dallas, I don’t really have a problem with it. The problem I see with this situation was the forming of a two-person voting government that enables him to invoke imminent domain when seizing land from rightful land owners. I think that’s criminal…

    The scheme has one flaw. Dallas does not need to buy water and if the reports I have read are accurate will not for many years, particularly if D/FW gets smart and permanently limits the criminal over-use of water for non-native grasses and vegetation (i.e. your yards).

    but I thought T Boone formed the pickensplan.com just to help out the environment and make the world a better place for love, and peace, and flowers, and caribou, and crap? he’s actually investing in an infrastructure play that could be worth billions 20 years from now, and selling us a load of environment crap? brilliant.
