And now for something completely different...

Jerry Warner and Pete "Robots Boy" Singer on defense energy strategy (.pdf).

The U.S. Department of Defense is the world’s single largest consumer of energy, using more energy in the course of its daily operations than any other private or public organization, as well as more than 100 nations. There may be no aspect of American defense planning that is as important, and yet little understood and acted upon, as our defense energy security strategy. Increasing our energy efficiency is often framed as an environmental issue, when it has actually become a core national security concern for America in the 21st century.
