CagedBear writes: The Christian Science Monitor reports the US Army is calling for increased use of wind and solar power in Iraq operations. From the article: Calling for more energy in the middle of oil-rich Iraq might sound odd to some. But not to Marine Corps Maj. Gen. Richard Zilmer, whose deputies on July 25 sent the Pentagon a "Priority 1" request for "a self-sustainable energy solution" including "solar panels and wind turbines." Could military spending bring a much needed monetary boost for advancement of these technologies?
