jet airplane was just one of the adventures that Mother Jones environmental correspondent Julia Whitty had while reporting the cover story for the March/April 2013 issue of the magazine. Watch Julia talk about her adventures—and the US Navy’s green makeover—here:
If you’re in the Washington, DC, area, you can see Julia speak at the next Climate Desk Live event on Wednesday, February 27, at 9:30 a.m., where host Chris Mooney will discuss the Navy’s charge toward energy independence with Dr. David W. Titley, retired naval officer who led the US Navy’s Task Force on Climate Change; Capt. James C. Goudreau, director of the Navy Energy Coordination Office; Dr. D.
