Since I launched the Pickens Plan in July 2008, I've gone coast to coast, made hundreds of speeches, been on I don't know how many TV shows, and met thousands of individuals like you who insist that America end its dangerous dependence on foreign oil.

As you'll see in this video, I took the Plan to Washington a few weeks ago and presented it to some of the country's best minds at the fourth annual ARPA-E Energy Innovation Summit. Secretary of Energy Steven Chu introduced me to this group, which showcases transformational energy technologies.

You and I both know the transformational change that has landed in our laps. It's America's abundant natural gas resources! The only problem is Washington hasn't taken this windfall and made it the cornerstone of a bigger, broader plan to get our country on its own resources.
