The Pentagon’s Energy Conversation Series
DID has covered the Pentagon’s increasing focus on energy consumption and conservation as a growing logistics and sustainability issue. Part of that coverage has mentioned “Energy: A Conversation About Our National Addiction” inter-agency events run by the Pentagon’s Office of Force Transformation and the Under Secretary for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics, supported by the Cebrowski Institute at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, CA.
Perhaps you couldn’t be in Virginia for the events (we couldn’t, either), but the Cebrowski Insitutute is carrying on its founder’s legacy by providing a web site where you can get the presentations, listen to audio recordings, et. al. Their site will continue to be updated, and events to date have included:
- April 24/06: Congressman Roscoe Bartlett [R-MD] and Dr. Robert Hirsch of SAIC: Averting a Liquid Fuels Crisis from “Peak Oil”
- March 27/06: R. James Woolsey, Former Director of the CIA: Energy, Security and the Long War of the 21st Century
