Here is a great piece by Tom Friedman on Navy efforts in clean, secure energy. He points out the challenges of developing and deploying these systems because of Congressional lobbying efforts by fossil fuel companies, a challenge not felt by Marines using renewable energy to secure their own lines of communication. In Andy’s most recent post, most of the efforts describe in Friedman’s OpEd are described in detail. Unfortunately, SecNavy Ray Mabus' speech writers are not reading this blog. We are still seeing the $400/gal number tossed around. Thanks to Gueta Mezzetti and Steve Anderson for highlighting this to us.
