The American Council On Renewable Energy (ACORE) has announced the appointment of Carlton W. Fulford Jr., a retired U.S. Marine Corps general, to its advisory board.
‘From my perspective, it is clear the United States' energy posture constitutes a serious and urgent threat to our national and economic security,’ says Dennis McGinn, ACORE's president. ‘ACORE is working to educate policymakers and the American public about ways to ensure our national and economic security through more rapid and extensive deployment of renewable, domestic energy.’
In his 37 years in the Marine Corps, Fulford held numerous leadership positions. He also served as director of the joint staff and, after leaving active duty, served as director of the Africa Center for Strategic Studies.
In 2006, Fulford formed his own consulting firm and presently consults with U.S. government agencies and other private organizations on matters pertaining to national security.
