T. Boone Pickens: Natural gas 'key weapon in war on terror'

22-Jul-2015 T. Boone Pickens thinks he's found a way to help win America's battles against terrorists.
In an essay for Time, the legendary Dallas oilman says using more natural gas is "a key weapon in the war on terror."

"Oil from the Middle East is no longer just an economic issue. It has become a national security issue," he wrote. "As long as we keep buying oil from the Middle East, our enemies can continue to fund terrorism."

Pickens suggested continuing the trend of converting heavy-duty vehicles from diesel to natural gas — comments that reiterate what he told Houstonians during a visit last year. (by Tom Knox, Houston Business Journal)
