In a trio of opinion pieces published in newspapers across the country, military veterans have urged the White House — and state governments — to defend and strengthen crucial clean energy policies in the name of economic stability, the environment and national security. In Virginia, two retired generals authored a piece explaining how addressing climate change via clean energy is not a partisan issue because “an independent supply of home-grown energy” creates jobs and strengthens security. In Nevada, a former commander of Nellis Air Force Base said states can take the lead on developing clean energy opportunities when the federal government refuses to take the lead.
