It’s one thing for us environmentalists to preach energy conservation and efficiency. It’s another thing for the top retired US military leaders to call for “immediate, swift and aggressive action” to reduce oil consumption. This is good to see. Maybe they’re not looking at it from the same environmental perspective, but they’re discussing it nonetheless!
What this tells me is that once you move beyond the hyper-partisanship we currently see, there are a lot of common issues. Motivations don’t necessarily need to be the same, but the intent to make things better for all of us needs to be the driving factor.
