ZapRoot vs. T. Boone Pickens: EcoGeek's Perspective

ZapRoot keeps surprising me. While sometimes there's a bit too much fluff for me to paddle through, other times the bust out with some of the most hard-hitting (though easy-on-the-eyes) eco-journalism on the web.

Sometimes a bit too hard hitting.

This weeks episode, for example, takes aim at T. Boone Pickens, the Texas oil man with an eye for wind (and, as it turns out, water.) Give Jessica a couple minutes of your time and http://ojalafilms.com/cheapest-levitra she'll have you convinced that Boone's wind farm is the uk cialis devil's work.

Now, I'm not a big fan of lifeinabundance.org draining the Ogllala Aquifer so Dallas can water its lawns for another ten years, but there are a lot of more evil ways to get rights for a water pipeline than by building a the world's largest wind farm.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that if we could have the wind farm without the water pipeline, that would be better. But just because the water pipeline is part of the deal doesn't mean we should nix the biggest renewable energy project in the history of the world.

What a bunch of bullshit. Just because the man has other plans in the work, to *deliver water*, doesn't discredit his other ideas. He's building the biggest wind farm in America, by far, without tax payer money. He even paid for the transmission lines.

What do buy cheap cialis these people want, a second coming of Jesus? They're never satisfied.

Ken... are you high... tell me the truth Ken. Without the opposition to buy levitra online cheap the water project you wouldn't get the www.toscanalifesciences.info wind project. The is corruption, sweet yummy corruption. The amendment was added to the bill after it was review in the legislature. The legislators didn't catch it and they've said so. Why not solar you ask? Well I'm glad you asked that... thanks Ken. Because solar can be anywhere, wind however has to be in the panhandle. This is message manipulation.... good manipulation.... but still manipulation.

See anyone can use adolescent titles.

T. Boone Pickens isn't in the Texas legislature. Blaming him for their mistakes is absurd.

The man is cheap pill viagra building the biggest wind farm in America. If he demanded the sacrifice of a virgin, I wouldn't hold it against him. In contrast, he's actually only asking for a WATER PIPELINE. Is that such a horrible thing? If the environmental damage of my921.ca such a project would be significant, guess what, we have an EPA for that.

This is the same old environmental whining that we've had for decades, and is the reason why nothing ever changes. You oppose EVERYTHING. Nothing is good enough.

I hope you enjoy living in a world of pollution. One man that actually has the resources and experience to build huge wind farms is doing it, even going so far as to fork over an extra couple of billion for transmission lines that are usually paid for by the government.

Instead of patting him on the back, you come out with pseudo-journalistic hit pieces. It's the same immature fantasy-land politics that we've had in this country for a long time.

What exactly does this man have to benefit from some diabolical scheme? He's about 80-years-old, and will keep the bucket in a few years. You think he wants to get rich(er) by fooling the Texas government? Get real.

History of the world?

Hank, I hate to get viagra prescription keep nitpicking but you should really try to stick to facts. The largest renewable energy project in the history of the world is easily the Three Gorges dam, which has nameplate capacity of 22.5 GW of power.

And yes, Boone Pickens' water mining project is indeed a bad idea.

I'm not exactly sure how I feel about this issue--I think I need more accurate information from both sides of the fence but it does seem to me that using eminent domain to sidestep reasonable objections to a possibly environmentally destructive venture is rather sneaky and underhanded. On the other hand, we've got to wake up to wow)) buy prescription viagra without the fact that as desertification spreads, the U.S. will face even more serious water shortages. How are we going to slake the thirst of levitra non prescription our cities? Who's going to pay for it? And who's going to profit? I think it's cool that Pickens is sale viagra building this huge windfarm but it's also naive to think he's not in it for the money...and whatever other gains he can make.

Ohhh Ken... What am I gonna do with you? I would point you your high school civics textbook on how the purchase female viagra lobbying process works, or the quote from the Senator that admitted that this was a mistake and they missed it, or the fact that you "sacrifice of a virgin" comment is just plain silly. But I'm not supposed to be doing your homework for you.

This is one new piece of info for me
written by Doug, August 01, 2008

.. that his pipeline is going to go right alongside the new transmission lines.

This explains why he's willing to build the transmission line if the govt. doesn't -- it clears the rights-of-way for him. Sneaky bastard.

If only Texas had a governor that acted more like Montana's Brian Schweitzer, you wouldn't need a T. Boone Pickens to build our wind farms. Sigh.

To Damien: I can think of one other reason why Texas (at least the click here best place viagra Dallas area and thereabouts) might not go for solar right away: the fact that they regularly get golfball-sized hail. My uncle in Plano has to replace the roof of his house every 4 years or so; I'm not sure how long your standard solar panel will stand up to that kind of abuse.

Though perhaps something that tracked the sun on 2 axes could be positioned to avoid direct hits in a storm; something like this:

(which incidentally is also 40% efficient, with very low silicon use)

Damien,

Keep wearing that tin-foil hat, buddy. Everything is an evil conspiracy by the oil men to viagra lowest price generic make a lot of money by ruining the environment. It's one big episode of Captain Planet.

If the Texas legislature wants to revoke the power of T. Boone Pickens to build a water pipeline, then that is within their authority. Strangely, I think they actually want their citizens to have access to water.

One question. Did you read the research?

T Boone has been working on this water pipeline idea for a long, long time and he has finally figured out a way to finagle the imminent domain problem. He has literally 'stolen' the water from the Panhandle. Friends of buy cialis in canada mine from Amarillo say he has a reservoir on http://www.chopperssportsgrill.com/indian-levitra-generic his ranch that looks like the invens.nl Great Lakes. People from Amarillo hate his guts and think he never does anything for the right reasons....only to line his own pockets and http://jaygalbraith.com/levitra-daily with the added caveat to cheat as many people as he possibly can in the process. Making money is the only game that gives him reason to wake up in the morning. Don't ever trust an oilman.

I think people need to wonder why he's so interested in water. The ogllala aquafer is already being depleated at increasing rates. I've heard predictions about looming water shortages that would impact agriculture and create huge problems, kind of like a dust bowl of the 21st century. Having the rights to buy ultram uk the remaining water in that kind of senerio would be a big deal.
