Short Film Documents the National Security Threat of Fossil Fuel Dependence, Highlights the Military’s Leadership on Solutions
Screening to be followed by Defense Energy Expert Panel Discussion




San Diego, Calif. — On Wednesday, June 4 at 6:00 pm PST, Congressman Scott Peters (CA-52), clean energy campaign Operation Free,
and Cleantech San Diego will host the first public screening of the film THE BURDEN followed by a discussion on Defense Energy issues at the
San Diego Central Library.


THE BURDEN is the first documentary of its kind to tell the story of how our dependence on fossil fuels is the greatest long­‐term national security threat
confronting the U.S. – and how the military is leading our transition away from oil. Watch the trailer.


The 40-minute documentary will be followed by a panel discussion featuring representatives from the military, San Diego clean energy industry, and
Rep. Scott Peters. The panel will discuss the energy security challenges our military faces, the innovative projects being conducted on San Diego-area
military installations to confront those challenges, and the leadership of Rep. Scott Peters to bring even more opportunities to the San Diego
clean energy community.
