One of the largest consumer of fossil fuel energy and therefore producer of CO2 emissions is the Military with the U.S. being the largest across all 3 branches. In 2013 the US Department of Defence spent $14 billion for operational mission fuel alone. The US DOD has a stated goal that by the year 2020 they will derive at least 50% of their fuel requirements from alternative sources.
