The movie Syriana opens today. The Warner Brothers/Participant film promises to be a whole new kind of action flick, one that makes you think and -- who knows? -- may even inspire you to get off your butt and do something.
To that end, the film launches alongside an online campaign called Oil Change. The Sierra Club is a partner in the project, which advocates a new energy policy for America -- one that would lessen our dependence on oil by investing in clean, renewable sources of energy and more fuel-efficient cars and trucks. Nothing very radical. Just pragmatic, commonsense stuff -- the kind of thing America used to be known for.
