The Military Goes Green is produced by GHSPi/Passport to Knowledge in collaboration with the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center as part of a partnership in support of the EARTH: The Operators’ Manual, an education and outreach initiative on climate science and sustainable energy, supported by a major grant from NSF, the National Science Foundation.
The event will take place on December 6, 2011 from 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM at the USS Midway.
Each expert will present specific and replicable examples of how the military and America as a nation can do more with less, and save both lives and money. The evening will include dramatic images and video from Afghanistan and Iraq, and out-take footage from the ETOM project. Other military branches will also be in attendance exhibiting the measures being taken in their division.
The presentation will begin with a welcome from Captain Marko Medved, Operations Officer for NAVFAC Southwest and will conclude with a brief opportunity for questions and answers.
On hand for a dynamic illustrated presentation are two speakers who’ve actively been involved with the military, and see a greener, safer and more energy-independent future for our nation: Former Chief of the CINC’s Action Group, Central Command, Colonel Dan Nolan (US Army, Retired) has spent time in Afghanistan, Kosovo, Iraq and Washington DC, and understands the complexity of these varied environments. After a distinguished career of 26 years with the Army, retiring as Chief of the CINC’s Action Group, Central Command, Dan Nolan became the Founder and CEO of Sabot 6, Inc., a company focused on recommending energy savings technologies as well as alternative and renewable energy power generation capabilities to the U.S. Government Energy Market, with special attention on the Department of Defense (DoD).
