To see a much more convincing and frightening video, head over to Kick the Oil Habit, a new campaign just launched by the Center for American Progress Action Fund. (Robert Redford will announce the campaign tonight on Larry King Live.)

For my part, I think they rely a little to heavily on gas-price hysteria on the problem page and ethanol on the alternatives page, but then, I don’t have millions of dollars to research and craft these things, so I should probably defer to their judgment.

Grist relies on the support of generous readers like you. Donate today to keep our climate news free. All donations matched!

Let’s hope it goes somewhere.

(Maybe Ana can drop by later and share more details about how the campaign was conceived and what its goals are.)

Grist thanks its sponsors. Become one.
