U.S. military's renewable energy goal puts Congress, Michigan to shame

Don’t believe the liberal peacenick wackos when they cry about our dependence on fossil fuel being a national security problem? Then maybe you’ll believe the military: http://www.pewclimatesecurity.org/

This study released today by the Pew Project on National Security, Energy and Climate details how the Department of Defense has set a goal of producing or procuring 25 percent of its electric energy needs from renewable sources by 2025. They also plan a U.S. Navy "green" carrier strike group to run completely on alternative fuels by 2016.

Think how sheepish some terrorist will be explaining how his cell was wiped out by some pansy carrier strike force that didn’t even run on Mideast oil!

It makes you wonder, if the military, which accounts for 80 percent of the U.S. government’s energy consumption can set a 25 by 2025 renewable energy goal, why the hell can’t the U.S. Congress? And why can't Michigan strive for something better than 10 percent by 2015?
