"Beyond the legislative process and focusing on things that we can control, it is inherently our responsibility as energy industry members to help cultivate and shape a positive attitude towards our industry. We must advocate exactly what we do and the process of how we do it in a safe and responsible manner. But more importantly we must advocate to change the attitude towards our industry and make the consumer understand that we are a vital part of this world. We are in every grocery store, every hospital…when you think of us, think of us as the total sum of what we offer and the services we provide. Because we are at a place where we can have a seat at the table, we are willing to have tough, respectful conversations; because we believe in science, we can adapt and are willing to shape our industry for the betterment of mankind and the earth. To deny that fossil fuels are an integral part of life is disheartening to the hardworking men and women who have built this industry from the ground up."
