The United States relies too much on fossil fuels. This degrades national security, negatively impacts the economy, and as seen over the past summer, harms the environment through catastrophic oil spills. Over the past year and a half, Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus has worked to chart a new course for the Navy and Marine Corps, setting ambitious goals that will by 2020 dramatically reduce the amount of fossil fuels consumed by the naval services.
A former governor of Mississippi and ambassador to Saudi Arabia, Mabus brings significant executive and energy experience to his post. In recognition of his leadership skills and as a result of his deep ties to the Gulf Coast, President Obama tapped Mabus this summer to construct the framework for long-term ecosystem, economic, and health care restoration efforts on the Gulf Coast in the wake of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
Please join Secretary Mabus for a discussion of the United States' new energy future and his post-spill work to restore the Gulf Coast.
