  1. So he’ll stop paying $60 a gallon for fuel?

  2. It’s very desirable for a SecDef to be aware of costs, including vershlugena $60/gal fuel that is more harmful to the environment than fuel based on Canadian tar sands would be.
    Every government department should be aware of its stewardship role. For SecDef, that would start with national security, extend next to the well-being of SecDef personnel, continue to maintenance of hardware and real estate, and include a thought for the taxpayers’ costs and investments. When stewardship can include care for the environment, yes, let’s do that too. Leak as little oil as may be, perhaps suspend sonar if a vulnerable animal is nearby (maybe not), dispose of wastes appropriately.
    The armed forces have long been involved in major recycling of things like aircraft and ships, only it was always called scrapping them.
