Yesterday, the Pew Project on National Security, Energy, and Climate released a letter signed by more than 350 veterans urging the president and Congress to support the Pentagon’s initiatives to diversify its energy sources and innovate. Strong supporting statements were made by retired military leaders from all branches of the military. Former Navy Secretary and Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee Senator John Warner (R-VA) weighed in as well. A link to the story appears below. ALPA has been working with airlines, aerospace industry manufacturers, farmers and biofuel producers to help the DOD reach their stated goal of developing a more secure domestically produced fuel source to mitigate the national security threat our current energy policy represents. We have the opportunity to positively affect our future fuel costs and we are working hard to realize our goal.
