In the eyes of Daniel Turner, what are the issues with Bernie Sander’s newly introduced Green New Deal? Why would it be impossible to become carbon-free by 2030?

In his view, what’s behind environmental movements like the Green New Deal proposals and the Keystone pipeline protests?

And what might a clean, prosperous, and technologically innovative future for America look like?

This is American Thought Leaders 🇺🇸, and I’m Jan Jekielek.

Today we sit down with Daniel Turner, the Founder and Executive Director of Power the Future, which engages in advocacy for American energy workers.

We discuss what Turner sees as disingenuous attacks on American energy and innovation, including the coal industry, and the importance of considering the millions employed by these industries.

American Thought Leaders is an Epoch Times show available on Facebook and YouTube.
