ASP’s CEO, Brigadier General Stephen Cheney, USMC (Ret) and Senior Fellow for Energy and Environmental Policy, Andrew Holland launched the briefing, discussing the link between national security and domestic consumer use of oil for transportation.
Lieutenant General Norman R. Seip, USAF (Ret) then discussed how national security is compromised by dependence on oil for transportation, and how improved fuel economy standards could help mitigate this dependence.
The briefing coincided with the Obama Administration’s announcement of a historic proposal to set stronger fuel economy and greenhouse gas pollution standards for Model Year2017-2025 passenger cars and light trucks, a proposal that ASP fully supports.
