Check out the surprising links between U. S. National Security and Long Term Sustainability

Our military is a vital and valued emblem of our country. These brave Americans devote their lives to our national security. That means now, as it has in the past, protecting the interests of the American way of life and U.S. assets. Surprisingly, military strategists are finding many links between our national security and the sustainability that may make our nation safer and more secure. To learn more about these intriguing connections, check out the links below in which military strategists examine the big picture for the U. S. in the foreseeable future. This insightful article (PDF) spells out the connection between rising gasoline prices and national security, and what we can do about it. Take a look at the Excellent commentary (PDF) and the Full Report (PDF) written by a Marine Colonel and a Navy Captain. 

The article and report point out the undeniable link between volatile fuel costs, our daily lives and our nation’s security.  The authors provide examples of simple but very effective measures that Americans can take that will lessen our dependency on foreign oil and materials. 

Every day citizens, armed with caulk guns and insulation can decrease our country’s energy burden and help our military. By unplugging, simply driving slower and less, reducing our use of plastics and petroleum-based products, we can truly make a difference. Who knew it was as simple as making a few common-sense changes? Americans are dynamic, energetic people. Taking action comes naturally to us, so performing easy everyday energy-saving measures can be a way to show support for our military and our country. Addressing responsible, fundamental changes to ensure our energy independence is one key part of future U.S. security—security for our families, our military, and our proud and independent way of life. That’s something we can all get on board to do.
