PTF On New Mexico Gun Ban: First Step In Their Perpetual Power Grab, Climate On Deck

Washington, D.C. - As New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham (D-NM) faces widespread backlash over her controversial public health order banning guns, there is concern that politicians will use climate as the next excuse for the next emergency declaration. Other leaders in the state are already calling for the declaration of a climate emergency, something the Biden Administration was caught discussing well over a year ago. Just last month, President Biden faced calls to declare a climate emergency and responded that he had already “practically” done so.

PTF Poll: EV Mandates Receive Bipartisan Opposition

Washington, D.C. - A new poll from Power The Future shows widespread opposition to electric vehicle mandates even in deep blue New Jersey. The poll found 58 percent of Garden State voters oppose EV mandates handed down by Governor Phil Murphy. The proposal, which requires all new car, SUV and light trucks sales in the state to be zero emission by 2035, fails to win majority support even among Democrats (46%), young voters (46%) and Murphy’s own approvers (48%). While reasons for the opposition vary, nearly 7 out of 10 residents feel the mandates will cost them more money.

BREAKING: Biden to Cancel Critical Alaska Leases

Washington, D.C. - News broke on Wednesday that President Biden’s administration plans to cancel critical oil and natural gas leases in Alaska. The lease was twice approved by Congress and two different Presidents and would have provided essential jobs and revenue to the state. In response, Power The Future Founder and Executive Director Daniel Turner issued the following statement:

“This is another nail in the coffin of the White House lie that Joe Biden isn’t standing in the way of American energy production. As families are dealing with rising gas prices, President Biden is working to ensure his radical green agenda comes first. During his short time in office, Joe Biden has delivered massive inflation and the highest gas prices ever: that will be the legacy of Bidenomics.”

PTF Statement on Dr. Anthony Fauci Climate Diagnosis

Washington, D.C. - Although he is not a high-level climate scientist, Dr. Anthony Fauci recently stated, “I mean if you look at it, everything from the fire, the tragic fire, in Hawaii to Texas which has something like 75 days in a row over 95. I mean it’s completely, really amazing what’s happened with climate change.

Power The Future Founder and Executive Director Daniel Turner issued this statement in response:

“Dr. Anthony Fauci was immeasurably wrong on lockdowns, masks, and social distancing during the last government emergency and now he’s trying to put his fingerprints all over a fake climate emergency. This is the same failed bureaucrat who condescendingly declared that if you attack him, you’re attacking science. Now that he’s latched on the climate grift, Americans should be extremely worried anytime they hear talk of a climate emergency.”

Four Key Energy Questions for Tonight's Presidential Debate

Washington, D.C. - As Republican candidates for President take the stage for the first debate, energy and the economy are at the forefront for every American family. For nearly three years, the Biden Administration has declared war on domestic energy production and voters are looking for answers to key questions that will inform them how the candidates plan to bring the country out of a failed economy. Questions that should be answered tonight include:

  1. Despite less than 1 in 10 Americans calling it a pressing issue, Joe Biden has said climate change is the greatest threat we face and has placed it at the forefront of every federal agency. How serious of a threat is climate change? What priority would your administration give climate change?

  2. Russia has used natural gas to threaten our European allies, yet America could produce enough natural gas for us and them. Do you support an infrastructure to produce, transport and ship liquefied natural gas LNG to our allies around the world?

Biden's Maui Visit Should Focus on Facts, Not Alarmist Climate Rhetoric

Visit Not An Excuse To Declare So-Called “Climate Emergency”

Washington, D.C. - As President Joe Biden leaves vacation and travels to Maui today, Power The Future is urging him to ignore pleas from activists about leveraging the crisis and declaring a so-called “climate emergency.” These demands from the left have intensified after Biden’s bizarre statement to the Weather Channel that he had “practically” already done so.

“For Joe Biden to look upon the suffering of the people of Hawaii as an opportunity to push his failed climate agenda is abhorrent,” said Daniel Turner, Founder and Executive Director for Power The Future. “Biden may vacation in the home of a billionaire climate donor, but he works for the American people and we’re tired of a President who puts his agenda before facts. No President, not even Joe Biden, should use a real disaster that has claimed the lives of more than 100 people to declare a political emergency.”

PTF Releases New Study On IRA’s Green Giveaways To The CCP

Washington, D.C. - At the one-year anniversary of the Inflation Reduction Act, Power The Future is releasing new research highlighting the links between President Biden’s green push and its enrichment of China. The report offers solutions to reverse Biden’s China dependence that has been supercharged by the $369 billion worth of green giveaways contained within the IRA.

“The billions in green handouts contained within the Inflation Reduction Act is a record-breaking payday for the Chinese Communist Party,” said Daniel Turner, Founder and Executive Director for Power The Future. “It’s appalling that American tax dollars are supporting slave and child labor around the world while Joe Biden works overtime to destroy American energy jobs. Congress must act to defund the green handouts within the IRA and ensure that American energy is the priority.”

The entire report, Where Green Meets Red: How the Environmental Agenda is Making America Dependent on China, can be found here.
