It's no secret politicians are beholden to money interests, many of whom actively block renewable energy development. Many of them know it's the right thing for America, but lack the political will to speak up. The Burden hopes to change this equation by giving political cover to timid politicians so they can finally vote for what's right, and break Big Oil's grip on Washington once and for all!
As we talked about last week, there are brave men and women in uniform facing real danger because of our fossil fuel dependence. This week's video profiles one of the film's unlikely heroes who spent years in harm's way moving fuel around the battlefield: the Republican mayor of Indianapolis, a former Marine who is now an outspoken champion of renewable energy in his city.
