Episode 45: Inside the Pickens Plan with Tom Synhorst and Jay Rosser

Apr 27, 2017, 02:48 AM

T. Boone Pickens is joined by Jay Rosser, his right hand man for 15 years who serves as his VP of Public Affairs, and seasoned political expert Tom Synhorst, who served as the Campaign Manager of the Pickens Plan.

They reminisce about the beginnings of the Plan in the summer of 2008, how we were importing $1 billion of foreign oil (it’s about half that today), how we had no energy plan and no prospects for one from either Obama or McCain, and how the campaign focused on converting heavy-duty trucks from diesel to natural gas right from the get-go.
