Oil is our greatest long-term national security threat. The U.S. Military is the world's largest consumer of oil and their dependence on supplies makes them constantly vulnerable to attack. The troops are crying out, in the words of Gen. James Mattis, "to unleash us from the tether of fuel." They want to lead the transition to clean energy. Lifting the burden of oil is a triple play: improve national security; create jobs; and clean the air. But is Congress listening?

PANEL DISCUSSION WITH: 

- Justin Ford, Organizing Director, Truman National Security Project
- Lieutenant General Arlen D. Jameson, United States Air Force (Retired)
- Andrea Marr, Vice President of Energy Services, Regatta Solutions.
