CagedBear (902435) 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.

Could military spending bring a much needed monetary boost for advancement of these technologies?"
