Green: FUEL - Change Your Fuel, Change The World

By Sunday both of our wonderful communities were abuzz with info about Josh Tickell's film FUEL. Farilla contacted Rebecca Harrell for free tix to Sunday evening's screening in Santa Monica. It felt really good to support such a positive film about solutions to America's oil addiction.

FUEL is an insightful portrait of America’s addiction to oil and an uplifting testament to the immediacy of new energy solutions. Director, Josh Tickell, a young activist, shuttles us on a whirlwind journey to track the rising domination of the petrochemical industry—from Rockefeller’s strategy to halt Ford’s first ethanol cars to Vice President Cheney's petrochemical company sponsored energy legislation — and reveals a gamut of available solutions to "repower America" —from vertical farms that occupy skyscrapers to algae facilities that turn wastewater into fuel. Tickell and a surprising array of environmentalists, policy makers, and entertainment notables take us through America’s complicated, often ignominious energy past and illuminate a hopeful, achievable future, where decentralized, sustainable living is not only possible, it’s imperative.

FUEL screenings have been extended another week in Santa Monica due to grassroots efforts. w00t!!! And even more screenings will be opening across the country in the next few days. The film needs 2,000 viewers here in LA in order to get national distribution. Please support this documentary by watching it and helping to get the word out.

For FREE tickets to see FUEL
this Friday (2/20) @ 7pm in Los Angeles/Santa Monica send and email entitled "ABUNDANCE 2" to rebecca@thefuelfilm.com.

Change Your Fuel, Change The World!
