American Fossil Fuel Workers Day of Visibility

American Fossil Fuel Workers Day of Visibility

April 22, 2024

Today, we will reclaim Earth Day. As the backbone of our energy industry and, by extension, our nation, fossil fuel workers deserve to be recognized for their contributions to society and treated with respect. Therefore, Power The Future declares April 22 the first-ever “American Fossil Fuel Workers Day of Visibility.”

This declaration will be amplified by mobile billboards patrolling the White House and National Mall to ensure that President Biden receives the message. Fossil fuel workers have experienced unfairness and mistreatment for far too long, it is time to change that. 

Daniel Turner, Founder and Executive Director of Power The Future, said the following about Fossil Fuel Worker Day of Visibility:

“American energy workers make every aspect of life possible, and yet instead of appreciation are met with outright hostility from the Biden White House and other environmental extremists. It’s the height of irony that the clueless protests wouldn’t be possible without the fossil fuels they are demonizing. On this day, we encourage Americans everywhere to remember the critical contributions of our nation’s fossil fuel workers.”

Power The Future’s American Fossil Fuel Workers Day of Visibility

On Fossil Fuel Worker Day of Visibility, we honor the extraordinary courage and contributions of working Americans and reaffirm our Nation’s commitment to forming a more perfect Union — where the work of all people is celebrated and appreciated throughout their lives. 

Despite the fact the Biden Administration has stood for energy poverty from the start, working to demonize the fossil fuel community so families can live with difficulty, in inflation, with high prices and disrespect. 

America’s Fossil Fuel workers are part of the fabric of our Nation.  Whether serving their communities or in the military, raising families or running businesses, they help America thrive.  But extremists are proposing hundreds of hateful laws that target fossil fuel workers and their families — silencing critics; banning those who don’t embrace their narrative; and even threatening them with unemployment by callously telling them they can “learn to code.” These efforts attack our most basic American values:  the freedom to be yourself, the freedom to work, and even the right to provide for your family.  It is no surprise that the bullying that American Fossil Fuel Workers face is worsening our Nation’s mental health crisis, leading to shattered communities where drug abuse and crime run rampant.  Let Us be clear:  All of these attacks are un-American and must end. 

Today, we send a message to all American Fossil Fuel Workers: You are loved, heard, understood, and belong. You are America, and millions of grateful countrymen and women have your back.

NOW, THEREFORE, We, POWER THE FUTURE, do hereby proclaim April 22, 2024, as American Fossil Fuel Workers Day of Visibility.  We call upon all Americans to join us in lifting up the lives and voices of fossil fuel workers throughout our Nation and to work toward eliminating arrogance and contempt based on the extreme climate agenda.
