The Pentagon says it's making a $9 billion investment over the next five years to minimize how much diesel and jet fuel it needs for combat operations. But DoD's consumption is still expected to rise over the next half decade because of new energy hungry technologies like the F-35 and Littoral Combat Ship. Sharon Burke, senior fellow for the International Security Program at New America Foundation, is also former assistant secretary of Defense for Operational Energy Plans and Programs. In a recent article for Foreign Affairs, she argues DoD's energy appetite isn't just a budget concern. She said on In Depth with Jared Serbu it's increasingly going to challenge the military's ability to perform its missions.

Alan Davidson, Open Technology Institute, New America Foundation

The Office of Personnel Management is rolling out the 2014 Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey. If the numbers from last year hold this year, federal job satisfaction will be as bad as it's ever been. And other research indicates young people are apprehensive at best about serving in government. Alan Davidson, vice president and director of technology policy and strategy for the Open Technology Institute at the New America Foundation, moderated a panel this week that looked at the federal technology talent deficit.
