Huffington Post Green Bus to the Rescue:
By Jennifer Grayson
Next Tuesday, it will have been one year since the monstrous Hurricane Sandy struck the East Coast, killing 117 people in the U.S., destroying thousands of homes and wreaking $65 billion in damage. And while this year's hurricane season has been thankfully quiet so far, it does have some now questioning global warming's role in all of this; that is, whether climate change will actually increase, or decrease, the likelihood of Superstorm Sandy-type storms.
I was just invited to the WHITE HOUSE for the Champions of Change event on Tuesday, November 5th, highlighting Veterans Advancing Clean Energy and Climate Security. This would not have happened without you, my friends at Dailykos, llbear, Oh Mary Oh, Burned, ranger995, kyne, 2thanks, shesaid, Gordon20024 and One Pissed Off Liberal for helping to save the Veterans Green Bus and the support of Team Rubicon USA and Veterans Green Jobs.
My 52nd Spin Around the Sun I'm still trying find my way.
On my 20th trip I join the Navy thinking I would save the world.
By my 25th, I realized I was helping end it.
On my 30th the experience almost ended me
By my 40th I found a reason not to.
By my 50th I got my second wind.
Now on my 52nd I'm still looking for the next adventure.
The Veterans Green Bus has returned to Detroit after almost a year on the road. We left Detroit just after Halloween of last year to help Team Rubicon USA respond to hurricane Sandy. Together we set up the volunteer organizational infrastructure and coordination in Rockaway Beach, Queens, New York.
We leave no man behind. I need to get Glen SuperDoc Miller form California back to the bus in Detroit after securing his personal belongings at home. We are looking to buy him plane ticket to St Luis, MO from San Jose.
The Large Marge has returned to Detroit after 8 months on the road. What started as a two week stint with Team Rubicon turned into a month with another two months with New York Cares and Friends of Rockaway helping people get back into their homes.
