It's been a few days without any word about T. Boone Pickens and the Pickens Plan, so I was starting to feel a bit uneasy. After all, shouldn't spending $58 million on a national PR tour bring you into the spotlight just about every day? I'd want it to be all Pickens all the time if I were him. Unfortunately for Boone—as I've learned that his friends call him, thanks to the video clip linked above—not all his publicity has been good.
For those people not up to speed on The Pickens Plan, Boone's plans for water in west Texas, and how those two are linked, ViroPOP has a short video introduction to the topic. It sums up several posts we've done here at TreeHugger in a about two and a half minutes of 'a cut every second won't distract people will it?' video goodness.
