Folks from the Truman Project, a progressive think tank, were on Capitol Hill today, making their pitch for green energy.
Mike Breen, Vice President of the Truman National Security Project and Operation Free Veteran, testified before the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations, talking about the need for clean, domestic energy:
“The connection between our energy posture and the national security threats we face could not be more clear. Yet, even in the face of overwhelming evidence and the certain consequences that inaction will bring, some say that we cannot or should not act, claiming that the pace of progress is too slow, or the costs too high. Fortunately, there are still those who remember what the nay-sayers have forgotten: when Americans stand together, there is no new market we cannot master, and no technological revolution America cannot lead. By investing in 21st century technologies, like wind, solar and biofuels, we can reduce our dependence on oil and ensure America’s national security.”
