Energy and National Security
The national security of the United States is deeply intertwined with our energy and climate security policy. Clean energy not only reduces our dependence on foreign powers, it also reduces our military logistical footprint and related risks to our troops. Climate security also importantly mitigates destabilizing factors that impact the global security environment in which our forces operate. It is critical that our national leaders understand this correlation and work towards the development of enabling technologies and policies that facilitate our national security.
