In fact, he estimated that 70% of the oil is made up of imports. The fact that oil is the key driver of the American economy, it cannot go without saying that a significant share of our energy resources is derived from other countries. This is not only detrimental to our economy, but to the environment and national security as well.

He believes that this is a necessary course since the global demand for oil is increasing by the day if the emergence of China and India is anything to go by. To begin with, Pickens proposes the use of Wind Power. This is because he considers wind to be not only renewable and clean, but it is 100% domestic as well. In addition, America has the largest wind reserves as opposed to any other country across the globe. By doing this, it will take the “energy generated by wind and using it to replace a significant percentage of the natural gas that is now being used to fuel our power plants.” In other words, the use of wind energy will go a long way in ensuring that the natural gas is solely used as a transportation fuel. More often than not, natural gas is considered as the form of energy that can sustain the transportation sector by virtue of it being clean, cheap, and in abundance. By taking this route, it will drive more efforts towards the development and manufacture of natural-gas-powered vehicles (Levi, 56).
Furthermore, our dependence on wind energy will help to plug the deficit of unemployment. In the process, this new development will be a major investment “in the heartland, creating room for hundreds of thousands of jobs” in the next few decades. This move will create an avenue for use of other sources of energy such as biomass, solar, and ethanol. Taking a step in this direction will save the country from

To perform the experiment we first numbered the four different medicine bottles. We then put 1 ounce of water in each bottle and placed each bottle in the freezer. Then we waited until the water in all the bottles froze and turned into ice. We then took out the bottles from the freezer and placed each one of them in a glass full of hot water.
In either of the games, my attitude and involvement changed with time as I experienced them. While I had a good experience with jenga game, the ice cream social proved tricky and I finally had to make the decision of quitting the social venture.
I initially liked
