The Burden: Exporting a Billion Dollars a Day

Sustainability Hub Ranking: 8.0

About This Video: THE BURDEN is the first feature-length documentary to tell the story of how oil dependence threatens national security, and how the U.S. military is uniquely positioned to bolster a clean energy economy that will strengthen our national, economic, and environmental security.

Military leaders have identified oil dependence as the greatest long-term threat to national security – not just dependence on foreign sources, but on all oil, period. The film presents the serious consequences of maintaining an untenable status quo, while illuminating the economic opportunities offered by a renewable energy economy, all in the name of
saving American lives and money.
