Putting Faces on the Dangers of Oil

This week's short Kickstarter campaign video focuses on the film's personal stories from veterans describing how their dependence on oil put them in danger and diverted resources from the wider mission. Please help The Burden tell these stories by supporting our Kickstarter campaign today.

Using, transporting and protecting fuel on the battlefield puts our troops in real and unnecessary danger every day.  Fully loaded fuel trucks are slow-moving, flammable targets. At the height of the Afghanistan conflict, U.S. forces incurred 1 casualty for every 24 convoys. 

Personal stories can be a powerful tool to bring about change. If you've served in the military we'd also like to hear your stories. If you haven't served, your views are still most welcome. Please visit our News page and share your thoughts in the comments sections.

Your support for The Burden on Kickstarter is not only helping a film, but growing the movement to end fossil fuel dependence in America.  Please make a contribution today, and view the latest update video on our Kickstarter page:


Thank you for being one of The Burden's most ardent supporters.

With gratitude,
