Mean and Clean: Mission Readiness Through Energy Diversity | Commentary

Unfortunately, too many have failed to recognize the importance of these investments, and their attempts to restrict the DODs advanced biofuels program undermine our national security and threaten to increase Americas risky dependence on foreign oil.

Recent attacks on the advanced biofuels program ignore the strong arguments made by our military leaders. Efforts to change current policy would interfere with the DODs aggressive efforts to develop a secure energy strategy.

We stand with our military leaders who have strongly supported investment in advanced biofuels to diversify our fuel supply and strengthen national security. Soon, the Senate will have the opportunity to take the lead by adopting its own version of the National Defense Authorization Act that will allow our military to continue its progress in developing advanced alternative fuels.

We call on our friends in the Senate to stand with our military leaders and take action to protect these advanced biofuels investments that strengthen national and economic security.
