Growth Energy Expands “You’re No Dummy” Campaign During Advocacy Conference

WASHINGTON, DC — Today, Growth Energy launched the second in a series of television ads as part of the “You’re No Dummy” campaign. The latest ad focuses on Big Oil’s attempt to repeal the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS).

“This ad is part of Growth Energy’s ongoing campaign to help Americans understand how the oil industry is trying to stop the growth of clean, green renewable fuels to protect its own bottom line,” stated Tom Buis, CEO of Growth Energy.

“In conjunction with the release of this latest television ad, Growth Energy is holding its annual Advocacy Conference this week to highlight the importance of the RFS and higher blends of renewable fuels for our nation,” Buis added.

“Big Oil has made repeal of the RFS one of its top policy priorities and it is time the American people know that they are actively seeking to block the use of renewable fuels that are cleaner burning, less expensive and reduce our dependence on foreign oil – it’s time to put an end to Big Oil’s campaign of misinformation to protect their bottom line by trying to eliminate competition,” Buis concluded.

As part of this campaign, these ads are airing nationally on major cable news networks such as FOX News, CNN, MSNBC and RFD-TV, as well as several local markets.
