Comments Off on US Military Drops Four Bombs on the Great Barrier Reef

The US military dropped four bombs weighing a total of 4,000 pounds on the Great Barrier Reef as part of a training exercise last week. The bombs, which were unarmed, were supposed to be jettisoned over the nearby Townshend Island , but that mission was aborted when it was reported that hazards made it unsafe to follow through as planned. Instead, the pilots of four AV-8B Harrier jets unloaded their bombs over the World Heritage Site because they were low on fuel and could not land with the heavy load.

Comments Off on US Military Slated to Quadruple Renewable Energy Installations by 2025

As the largest military force on the planet, the US Department of Defense (DoD) is also the largest consumer of energy in the world. Every year, the combined forces use 3.7 billion kilowatt hours of electricity and 120 million barrels of oil, totaling around $20 billion. In order to save some cash and to avoid having to purchase fossil fuels from countries hostile to American interests, the DOD plans on drastically increasing its renewable energy capabilities. In a report published this week by Pike Research , the U.S. military intends to ramp up its existing 80-megawatt renewables capacity four-fold to 3,200 megawatts by 2025.
