A new group headed up by Alaskan Rick Whitbeck has announced it will be active this year in exposing the anti-economy tricks of the trade practiced by the dozens of environmental nonprofit organizations active in the state.
Power the Future is a decidedly “disruptive” nonprofit that fights for energy jobs and points out the hypocrisies of the environmental lobby. It pulls no punches and may use the tactics that the environmental groups use, such as pickets and protests.
“With so many loud voices in the energy conversation, ours will highlight truth, unmask agendas, expose hypocrisy and reduce hyperbole,” the mission statement reveals.
The group’s website is www.powerthefuture.com.
The group’s CEO, Daniel Turner, will be in Alaska to speak at the Meet Alaska trade show and conference on Jan. 18.
Whitbeck’s office is in midtown but he said you can expect to see him everywhere but in his office.
