Conference Paper
This paper explores T. Boone Pickens's "Pickens Plan" in light of historical conflicts surrounding United States energy policy. Pickens, with his "Pickens New Energy Army" has garnered support from both sides of the aisle, and has mounted an enormous public campaign with at least 1.3 million supporters, making his the largest alternative energy campaign in history. Pickens' conflict- positive approach for uniting stakeholders will be examined as a means to advance the national energy policy discussion. ..PAT.-Unpublished Manuscript
