  Most military bases are hopelessly contaminated already, this is a good idea.
Yahoo! News - Bush Wants Refineries at Ex-Defense Bases: "In remarks to small business leaders, Bush will urge using closed military bases as sites for new oil refineries. The Energy Department is being ordered to step up discussions with communities near such bases to try to get refineries built.

'We know we have a capacity problem,' White House press secretary Scott McClellan said Wednesday. 'We haven't built a new refinery since the early 1970s. A lot of what we are importing now has been refined outside the United States.'

Bush also will call on Congress to provide a 'risk insurance' plan to insulate the nuclear industry against regulatory delays if they build new nuclear power plants. And he will endorse giving federal regulators final say over the location of liquefied natural gas (LNG) import terminals."
