Do you think without lobbyists from coal and fossil fuel industries renewable energy would be much much further along than it is now?

    While coal and fossil fuel lobbyists do fight for policies that will be in the best interest of these industries, the renewable energy industry also has lobbyists to represent it.

    Lobbyists testify before commitee hearings to support the interests of the industries they represent. They provide information for lawmakers and federal organizations. They act as PR agents for their industries that try to get legislation enacted that will be most beneficial to their cause.

    While fossil fuel and coal lobbyists are fighting to use the law to help their industries maximize profits, they are not fully responsible for any slow development among renewable energy. Consumers and voters have more power in shaping laws than lobbyists if they are adamant about making their voices heard.
