The U.S. military is the nation's single largest user of energy. We hear about big plans to cut back on fossil fuels.
Colonel Dan Nolan, US Army (retired)
Over 1,000 U.S soldiers have died transporting fuel in the military. Doing this job in combat zones, such as Iraq and Afganistan, is considered to be the most dangerous job in the world.
The US military is the nation's single largest user of energy, however they have big plans to reduce their "carbon bootprint" and cut back on their use of fossil fuels. The end result: to save lives, lessen risks, and reduce tactical vulnerability. The military considers the plan to be a win-win for all concerned.
