GREEN, ANTI-WAR FILM, "FUEL" THEATRICAL RELEASE, ITS BUS, & HOW YOU CAN HELP

Now that America has chosen our next president, the real work of reinvigorating our great nation begins. That's why I am thrilled to share with you that "FUEL," the critically acclaimed Sundance award-winning documentary on green energy, opens in theaters this month! The film, "FUEL" informs people about green energy solutions that exist today, inspires and motivates viewers to take action now. By achieving our goal of 15 million Americans seeing FUEL by the end of 2009, we can generate the required nation-wide support to end our addiction to oil - and war.

We recently bought a school bus and are converting it into an educational tool to so that people can learn about conservation and alternative energy. We're looking for volunteers who can weld, do woodworking, work with solar or do electrical work. We're also looking for a place to store and work on the bus in Venice, CA.
