Sierra Club Non-Sequitors

Sierra Club Non-Sequitors

“I hope you have not been leading a double life, pretending to be wicked and being good all the time. That would be hypocrisy.”

-Oscar Wilde

We don’t want to ruin the Sierra Club’s summer fun.  After all, can’t we all take a break from the incessant cycle of politics and policies to enjoy some sunshine and relaxation?  Lord knows Power The Future has been working hard for energy workers, and we deserve some respite.  And we don’t doubt Sierra Club, too, has been working hard to destroy the American economy and bankrupt rural energy towns all to the glee of their patrons and the Soviet Uni…er… Russian Federation.  So why are we calling them out yet again?

Because the hypocrisy is too much.  The hypocrisy, the aloofness, the indifference, or the absolute and utter stupidity.  We’ll let you decide which moniker to ascribe to their endorsements of “Must Have” Kayaking equipment.

Let us shout this message from the rooftop in case Sierra Club doesn’t get it: everything recommended in this article is a petrochemical.  Yes. EVERYTHING.  The kayak, the oars, the clothes… it is all a product of the very stuff you campaign to “keep in the ground”.  It is affordable because of American innovation and genius.  It is mass produced because of American entrepreneurship.  It is all the fruit of the labor of millions of men and women working hours in oil fields and on rigs.

So, for starters, Sierra Club, thank you for recognizing their efforts and promoting their products.  We, too, love fossil fuels.  And we at Power The Future hope this signals a major change for your organization, for surely there are far greater issues like poverty, world peace, and curing cancer that deserve your 9-figure operating budget?  Wouldn’t it be great if your mission was dedicated to those causes, and not threatening energy workers’ jobs (just to please the narcissist Tom Steyer)?

You can admit it… go ahead… admit it.  When you’re in your carbon fiber kayak using your industrial plastic oar and your nylon, water-resistant jacket… you love petrochemicals.  Welcome to the club, Sierra Club.  Welcome to American progress and prosperity.  Feels good, doesn’t it?
