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

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.

solve energy problems.
