Inhofe: Jolly “Green Fleet” Throwing Defense Dollars Out to Sea
Link to Recording of Green Fleet Conference Call
Washington, D.C. - This week, as the U.S. Navy’s “Great Green Fleet” took to the seas for a three day demonstration off the coast of Hawaii, Senator James Inhofe (R-Okla.), Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, said that the last thing the Department of Defense (DoD) needs as it faces drastic budget cuts is to be forced by President Obama to waste billions of taxpayer dollars on an outrageously expensive green energy agenda. Senator Inhofe also commented on a conference call regarding the green fleet held today between reporters and Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus, President Obama’s climate chief Heather Zichal, and Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack.
