Gotta love this list of seven major ways the U.S. military is making it up to the environment, posted by the green-minded at Earth2Tech. It's one of those pieces that makes me simultaneously shudder and smile. I mean, how green is it to eliminate the planet of human life in the first place?
Still, you can read more about tents that collect solar power (might be useful in 130-degree Iraq), biofuel research, hybrid combat vehicle research, and other experiments being supported by U.S. taxpayer dollars. The Earth2Tech article has plenty of interesting links. Enjoy!
I suppose if my money has to go to guns, this numbs the sting a little. Bleeding heart liberal? Yup. Sorry, Dad.
