T. Boone Pickens to speak at Yale

NEW HAVEN - Texas "oilman-turned-environmentalist" T. Boone Pickens will deliver the Gordon Grand lecture at 4 p.m. March 24 in Yale Law School’s Levinson Auditorium, 127 Wall St., according to a press release.

Titled “Solving America’s Energy Crisis,” the lecture is free and open to the public, the release said.

"Dubbed 'the Oracle of Oil' by CNBC for his ability to accurately predict oil prices, Pickens has spent the last three years lobbying for a comprehensive plan to reduce American dependence on foreign oil," the release said.
"The “Pickens Plan” calls for switching to natural gas for transportation fuels and investing in renewable energy sources such as wind farms and solar energy. Pickens, who is founder and chair of BP Capital Management, also authored a best-selling autobiography, “The First Billion Is the Hardest.” He is a frequent guest on some of the nation’s most-watched business programs."
