New Ads Strike Back at Big Oil’s Ethanol Attack

In major markets across the country, Growth Energy is giving television viewers a healthy dose of reality with a series of satirical ads exposing Big Oil’s big plan to keep renewable fuels out of the market. Featuring Mr. Slick and Dummy, a ventriloquist and his puppet, the ads point out how oil interests use misinformation perpetuated by virtual mouthpieces to ramp up rumors about ethanol anyone could recognize as self-serving propaganda if it came from their mouths.

The ads, which will also run in print and online, illustrate what many who study the industry have seen for years. Big Oil manufactures anti-ethanol campaigns for one reason – ensuring they keep a stranglehold on our nation’s energy supply. In parroting the oil industry’s propaganda, ethanol bashing “experts” become no more than puppets for their fossil fuel masters.

Ethanol offers a renewable alternative to gasoline that frees the United States from an addiction to what Big Oil pushes. It does so while keeping costs down and dollars in our economy.

Don’t be spoon-fed supposed facts cleverly manufactured to come in an easy-to-swallow package. Think about your pocketbook, your environment and your nation’s future. Think about ethanol.
