T. Boone Pickens and the Pickens Plan

T. Boone Pickens  comes to The Daily Show to promote the Pickens Plan.  Pickens, chair of the hedge fund BP Capital, is stressing the need for a US energy plan.   The Pickens Plan outlines energy policy with primary goal is to end America's dependency on OPEC oil.  It turns out that China (yes, China) has agreed to the Pickens Plan.

It's not the funniest of segments, but every time they use the word "frac" (in describing oil wells), I have flashblacks to Battlestar Galactica.
