ALTERNATIVE ENERGY
COULD ENHANCE
NATIONAL SECURITY

Increasing use of alternatives energy sources could make the nation's electricity grid less vulnerable to future terror attacks, suggests a new report released today by Environmental Defense.

The report, "Safe and Secure: Meeting America's Electricity Needs," demonstrates that an American economy powered by distributed renewable energy and linked with increased efficiency investments and cogeneration, would be cleaner and safer than the current emphasis on fossil fuels and nuclear power.

"Affordable technology exists for a new American energy economy that can deliver real cuts in oil consumption and greenhouse gas pollution, while at the same time making the nation's power supply more secure from terrorist attacks," said Environmental Defense senior attorney Jim Marston. "The sunlight, wind and falling water that power renewable energy cannot be eliminated, and renewable energy is not powered by explosive, flammable or radioactive fuels which are vulnerable to attack."

The report calls for:

"Earth is already beginning to show the effects of global climate change, and responsible nations are taking action," said Steve Cochran, Environmental Defense's director of strategic communications.

"As the world's largest producer of greenhouse gas pollution, it's well past time for the United States to join the broad based international coalition against global warming," added Cochran. "Because the science on this issue is clear, the administration and Congress should work together on a clean energy package that protects America's national security, environmental security and economic security."
