TREE HUGGERS, HAWKS, (and LABORERS?)

The Set America Free Coalition aims to create links between environmentalists and security hawks interested in reducing American dependence on foreign oil (I would argue that domestically-produced oil would not be much better, environmentally or in terms of national security.).  Institute for the Analysis of Global Security (first referred to me by my brother, Jeremy) addresses some similar issues.

Thomas Friedman focuses on another aspect of the drive for alternative energies/energy efficiency:  potential benefits to the American labor force of environmental reforms.

How can we better develop coalitions between all of these communities and interest groups?
