DALLAS (AP) - Texas billionaire T. Boone Pickens says Americans
are ready for the challenge if President Barack Obama will commit
to a 10-year plan to reduce U.S. dependence on foreign oil.

Pickens said Tuesday he believes the U.S. has enough natural gas
reserves to "replace dirty foreign oil." Speaking at the
Sustainable Innovation Summit in Dallas, Pickens reiterated his
belief that wind and solar power also are keys to energy
independence.

The Texas oilman said nothing has happened in the two years
since Obama pledged to implement a 10-year plan for exploring
alternative energy sources.

Pickens criticized the U.S. for being behind China in trying to
solve energy problems.

Oil companies have been developing natural gas fields in the Brazos Valley for years.

Huge fielsds have been identified in areas in Burleson, Brazos, robertson adn Leon Counties.
