Captain Jim Adams U.S. Navy (Retired)—Commander Corlett should be lauded for a hard-hitting exposé on Navy “go-green” efforts. It is too bad that senior Navy civilian and uniformed leadership have wasted and continue to waste millions of dollars on this effort. To have these leaders push “greenness” and fund it while at the same time complaining about how they do not have sufficient Fleet-readiness funding is laughable.
Congress and those officers brave enough (like Commander Corlett) need to say, “Show me the money,” and ask who (and whose Beltway connections) will profit from the “Green Effort” funding. Unfortunately, Congress has been asleep in this area.
