I’ve told you before, dear readers, how T. Boone Pickens wants us to convert everything to natural gas so that when all the water is either used up from fracking or fracked up from fracking, he can sell us water from all those water rights he has purchased. Now he is trying to have the law changed to assist him.
T. Boone Pickens’ water company is urging the Texas Supreme Court to model state water law after Texas laws that govern oil and gas. Pickens’ water-law scheme is a recipe for disaster if you don’t happen to be an octogenarian billionaire.
From Texans for Public Justice:
I recommend that you read this report, every word, only if you care anything at all about access to water.

Donating his millions helter-skelter … announcing his latest half-cooked plans to the press once a month … someone please help this old man pick up his marbles and go home.
Bluedaze–you are dead right about what T Boone is up to!
Tim Ruggiero says
Clearly not the same Anonymous posters in the TRRC post above…..Pickens only gives a damn about making money, and nothing but. Normally, I would be all for someone who knows how to make money to do so-they often own large corporations or businesses that employ thousands of people which also provides them with many benfits. That said, I'm not for anyone who makes a buck or even tries to, at the expense of another, especially when their lives are at stake. Im not real sure what Pickens is up to, I just know it ain't no good.
