Growth Energy has launched a new, national advertising campaign - You're No Dummy - to fight back against Big Oil's effort to stop the growth of renewable fuels. So far - Growth Energy President and CEO Tom Buis says Big Oil has done everything it can to block competition from renewable fuels - and now the oil industry is trying to get Congress to repeal the Renewable Fuel Standard. Buis says this simply is a fight about market share.
An unlikely ally in the fight against big oil is modestly stated by Idaho Congressman Mike Simpson. Here is his spokesperson, Nikki Watts: "Congressman Simpson strongly believes that our efforts should be comprehensive in nature and that we should explore every opportunity to develop viable traditional as well as alternative energy sources."
