    T. Boone Pickens grew up during the Depression, so some of his business acumen may have originated in those hard times.  After graduating from Oklahoma A&M (aka: Oklahoma State) he started working for Phillips Petroleum company.   Around 1954 Pickens and two “investers” started a company called “Petroleum Exploration Inc”

    He would eventually go on to start another company called Altair Oil and Gas.  In 1964 he started Mesa Petroleum and eventually built the company into “one of America’s largest independent natural gas and oil companies.” (link below).

    So — he made the money he’s investing in clean energy from previous energy (oil) — so at least he knows the biz.
