After watching this video, I realize that I was somewhat thick for not connecting the effectiveness of fuel to the over all effectiveness and safety of the military. Maybe I just haven't been looking in the right places, but I've never seen or read a discussion that addressed the need for alternative sources of energy from a military stand point. Of course, once you think about it, it makes perfect sense, considering our tanks, planes, drones, trucks, and warships all rely on oil. Imagine if a day comes that will actually run out of oil (or people refuse to sell it, or w/e). There goes our ability to use practically all of our offensive and defensive machines. If we don't have an alternative lined up, what do we do? Another thing I didn't think about was how the change in oil prices dramatically effects the military and their budget. Like the video says, when a barrel of oil goes up $20, and the military buys billions of barrels, it makes an enormous impact. Anyway, I posted this in PRSI because anything to do with war, renewable energy, or climate change (or all 3) has the risk of descending into lunacy.
