Salute to Service: Sustainability and National Security

Sustainability Series

Lt. Gen. Norman Seip

  • Air Force Lieutenant General (ret)
  • 12th Air Force Commander, Davis-Monthan Air Force Base

As Commander, General Seip oversaw Air Force assets, five forward-operating locations, and civil and military engagements in Central/South America and the Caribbean. He was a command pilot in support of operations Southern Watch, Northern Watch, and Iraqi Freedom. As the Deputy Combined Forces Air Component Commander for US Central Command, Seip had a direct impact in supporting combat operations in Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom and Joint Task Force-Horn of Africa. He currently serves on the Executive Advisory Council of Mission Readiness: Military Leaders for Kids, a bipartisan organization of 140 retired senior military leaders.

In this talk, General Seip will discuss sustainability initiatives at the Department of Defense, the world's largest institutional consumer of fossil fuels. From Afghanistan to Fort Huachuca, the Department is aggressively shrinking its carbon footprint and moving toward biofuels, solar, and other renewable energies.

Following the talk, Sustainability Scientist (and director of the film Carbon Nation) Peter Byck will moderate a question-and-answer session.

Parking is available at the Apache Parking Structure.
