“We are the voice of energy workers pushing back on radical green groups and the ideologues who fund them.”
In February 2018, the 501c4 advocacy group Power the Future joined the energy-policy fray on the side of consumer-chosen, taxpayer-neutral energies. Think oil and gas in particular. Coal too.
By way of introduction, I have copied material from their website for interested readers.
“What We Believe“
We carry out these beliefs by disseminating research, sharing facts and truths, engaging at the local level and interacting with the media. With so many loud voices in the energy conversation, ours will highlight truth, unmask agendas, expose hypocrisy and reduce hyperbole.
Our work is dedicated to the men and women who “power the future” through their hard work, sweat, determination and grit. Every time we turn on a light or start up our car, whether consciously or not, we are acknowledging your labor and we say thank you.
The founder and executive director is Daniel Turner (see his most recent op-ed here). The Western States Director is Larry Behrens; The Alaska Director is Rick Whitbeck. A variety of media hits has been achieved to date for this young organization.
DeSmog Blog Accolades
A vote of confidence for Power the Future (PF) comes an attempted expose from DeSmog Blog (see our previous posts on DeSmog here), which identifies PF for what it is: a pro-consumer, pro-entrepreneur, fact-based organization. Some DeSmog quotations:
If this sounds good, clap your hands.
Free-market-oriented energy groups are vastly outspent and outnumbered by the Progressive Left that wants to make energy more expensive and more scarce to “save the planet.” Groups like Power the Future, as well as the traditional think tanks like the Competitive Enterprise Institute, the Heartland Institute, and the Institute for Energy Research, are carrying the flag of energy prosperity and optimism future for energy-rich societies.
Every voice is needed; support one and all.
