On this week’s interview Paul Gessing talks to Daniel Turner, the Founder and Executive Director of Power the Future. The group is a grassroots organization with the mission of offering truth, facts, and research that will enrich the national conversation on energy. Starting out, Daniel notes that his organization has hired New Mexican Larry Behrens to direct the group’s efforts in Western states.

In this wide-ranging and entertaining discussion, Paul and Daniel talk about a variety of so-called pro-environment proposals including those from Daniel’s home state of New York where New York City’s Mayor wants to end construction of tall buildings and band hot dogs from city buildings. Finally, Daniel offers his perspective on the radical energy and environment plans being put forth by some of the leading Democrats for President of the US.
