I know, I know, I’ve been harping on this lately. But only because it is really important. Our security is inextricably linked to our energy use. And increasing enerfy-efficiency, is a key part of this.
It was interesting, therefore, to see an article in the NY Times yesterday about this very issue, A National Security Strategy That Doesn’t Focus on Threats. It discusses the connection between sustainability and national security–and a paper written not by Greenpeace, but by two high-level military strategists.
So often, the military has led the country, on social issues, with technological advances. And it looks like they’re doing it again. We should pay attention. Energy-efficiency is not just a feel-good, personal virtue. It is a national imperative, and we can all play a role, starting at home.
