There is a lot to be said in favor of natural gas, especially as a transitional fuel. I think nuclear leaves a lot of potential long term consequences that we haven't a way of dealing with, at least not one that I'm aware of.
I would like to hear Mr. Pickens address the dangers of LNG, however, and how to deal with them. Each LNG tanker packs an atomic bomb's worth of energy into a pretty small space, and they deliver their payloads within spitting distance of major ports and cities. Successfully target one of these giant tanker ships outside New York or Boston Harbor, or—worse—inside those harbors, and you have lost not only a large and populous city with all its people, but the infrastructure that goes with it.
The proposition Mr. Pickens offers is one that demands serious consideration in all its aspects.
