    A wonderful idea, micwazoo! It would be interesting to know exactly what the new D.O.D. green initiative is doing about this right now. See the first footnote in my piece above for details and some places to start that kind of research. Historically, there have been ways that the military has led social reform in our country: mandated racial integration of the forces, the end of "don't ask, don't tell," and now the Pentagon's green push, which Republicans have been attacking. I love it that the D.O.D., usually a darling of the G.O.P.,  is taking climate change seriously and preparing for it in ways that may reduce it, and the conflict it will definitely cause in the future!
