My situation regarding a Press Release seems rather unique. Rather than trying to "promote" or "sell" anything, my goal is to enable China and India to eliminate all air pollution. Similar for the US and Europe. I am a Retired Christian Minister so I do not want to accumulate any cash from this. This system will eliminate using any fossil fuels and eliminate all accidents, while transporting people and products at 200 mph. The "world needs this".

I'm comfortable with business writing, but I've never written a Press Release before. This guide gave me a lot of points to consider. I would have given 5 stars, but there were more than a few typos and grammar issues.
