In a July 18, 2012 photo provided by the U.S. Navy, the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz (CVN 68) participates in the Great Green Fleet demonstration portion of the Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC) 2012 exercise. Nimitz took on 200,000 gallons of biofuel in preparation for the Great Green Fleet demonstration during Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC) 2012. Navy Secretary Ray Mabus says he thinks federal lawmakers will come around on the branch’s ambitions to ease its use of foreign oil once they understand it’s not an environmental move, it’s a defense strategy.
