Citizens Climate Lobby says
The Burden is the first documentary of its kind to tell the story of our dependence on fossil fuels as the greatest long­‐term national security threat confronting the U.S., and how the military is leading our transition away from oil. Filmaker Roger Sorkin imagines the American triple play of this century — to improve national security, create jobs, and protect the environment. The troops are crying out, in the words of Gen. James Mattis, “to unleash us from the tether of fuel.” But is Congress listening?

Come join us for the second of 3 screenings in San Diego County of the film,
