Warren introduces plan to reduce military’s carbon footprint

Sen. Elizabeth Warren said on Wednesday she is introducing a bill to toughen the US military against future climate change damage and reduce its greenhouse gas emissions at certain bases in a little over 10 years. Warren’s proposed legislation pushes the Pentagon to achieve net zero carbon emissions for all its non-combat bases and infrastructure by 2030.

What happens when your all electric truck carrying troops between bases starts to take mortar fire and it's lithium battery decides so spontaneously burst into flames? These sorts of poorly thought out touchy feely rules are the kind of crap that will literally get soldiers killed.

Yeah no. I get it you’re all freaking over emissions but I’m not risking our troops by putting non-essential requirements into their equipment. If vehicle can carry a little more and/or move just a hare faster by doubling its emissions that’s fine by me. Because that payload could be a wounded marine and the golden hour is a hard rule you never want to exceed.

Actually the US navy has made strides to use bio fuels where they can. This is not just to develop the industry and be all green but also to ensure energy security in future large wars. Multiple sources = redundancy. Renewable energy also often means energy security.
