Press Release (see comments below): 

“The Burden,” is a documentary about the enormous risks the military faces because of U.S. dependence on fossil fuels and the steps defense leaders are taking to transition to clean energy.

"Until I saw The Burden, I didn't realize that so many of our casualties in war zones happen with military convoys transporting fuel in conflict areas,” said Carolyn Sellars, co-leader of Citizens' Climate of North Central MA. “Generating power from renewable sources like solar would eliminate much of that risk.”
Additionally, the U.S. military is increasingly responding to catastrophes and conflicts that have been exacerbated by climate change. Defense Department reports have referred to climate change as a “threat multiplier,” a situation that will escalate unless we reduce the heat-trapping emissions from fossil fuels that drive climate change.
 
“As the title of the film implies, the burden of our dependence on oil is costly in both lives and money, and that’s why the military is leading the way on the clean energy transition,” said Sellars.
