We’ve previously noted that the first sign of an undead threat will destroy the modern supply chain. Everything from bananas to bottled water will vanish from our reality in just a matter of days, and fuel to power a strong zombie defense is no exception.
Fortunately, the United States Navy is making itself more ready for the coming zombie pandemic by reducing its dependence on precious oil. In a major shift, the Navy is working with sugarcane growers in Hawaii to produce advanced biofuels that can be easily and cleanly pulled from the soil.
Their next step is to create a Green Strike Group that will even include biofuel-powered aircraft, with the ultimate goal of converting half of their entire fleet by the end of this decade.
Because zombies are thought to be primarily a land-based menace, we can only hope that the Army and Air Force will soon follow suit. If not, we may find ourselves desperate, hungry, and under constant attack by the undead in our own hometowns, while battleships sit safely off the coast, waiting for the order to bomb us all back to the Stone Age.
