T. Boone Pickens Knows Which Way the Wind Blows
Mesa Energy main man T. Boone Pickens sits down today with the U.K. Guardian to discuss his investment in 500 Panhandle wind turbines, which cost, oh, 'bout $2 million each. And even the Dallas billionaire, who's about to turn 80, is mighty impressed with his $10 billion investment in the clean-energy market -- "mind-boggling," he calls it, if he does say so his own self. Only, he adds: "Don't get the idea that I've turned green. My business is making money, and I think this is going to make a lot of money." Turns out, he got the idea whilst shooting Bobwhite quail on his 68,000-acre spread. --Robert Wilonsky
