"Military Goes Green"
With U.S. armed forces burning through 300,000 barrels of oil a day, which costs taxpayers roughly $11 billion per year and puts troops in jeopardy as they transport it to the front line, the Pentagon is aggressively addressing both the economic and tactical benefits of going green. Correspondent Brian Rooney travels to the Navy's high-tech research facilities in China Lake and reports on the military's newest conservation developments including solar and geo-thermal power plants, plant-derived jet fuel, and even "green ammunition."
Part Two of SoCal Connected's "Extreme Green" series, follows a group of environmentalists who are passionate about rescuing food...from the local dumpster. Millions of pounds of food are discarded every year, where it will eventually go to a landfill, decompose, and release heat-trapping methane gases. SoCal Connected anchor Val Zavala sits down with some of these dumpster divers, about how and why they dive for dinner.
