Military spearheads clean-energy drive
"PATUXENT RIVER NAVAL AIR STATION, Md. With the Navy's Blue Angels and their F/A-18 Hornets arrayed in a neat line behind him, Navy Secretary Ray Mabus announced that they would perform in the Labor Day Air Expo using a 50-50 mix of a plant-based biofuel and conventional fuel.
"It's part of our process to move to alternative energy all across the Navy, Mabus told reporters gathered on the sun-baked runway before him on Sept. 1. The main reason we're moving toward alternative fuels in the Navy and the Marine Corps is to make us better war fighters.
"As the nation's single biggest energy consumer, the Pentagon has many reasons to want to diversify its fuel sources. Mabus and others say the move toward alternative energy is about national security and assured sources of supply."
