From Reuters regarding the Pentagon’s “controversial” green fuels initiative:
[What] The Pentagon hopes it [the green fuels initiative] can prove [with the initiative is that] the Navy looks as impressive burning fuel squeezed from seeds, algae and chicken fat as it does using petroleum.
But the demonstration, years in the making, may be a Pyrrhic victory.
Some Republican lawmakers have seized on the fuel’s $26-a-gallon price, compared to $3.60 for conventional fuel.
The great green Navy is a result of what happens when the
environmental shamans amateurs political appointees are running the show and when too few are concerned about costs.
Next thing we’ll hear is we have to downsize the Navy. Why? Those darn operating costs have just risen too high.
