I feel their pain.  Having experienced hurricane aftermath on Galveston Bay first hand am putting this post up in hopes  that more assistance will go their way.

Climate Change and 350.org

Kudos to everyone working boots on the ground with Occupy Sandy.  What an awesome, giving win!

Thinking about the long run we can also put in   time and treasure into 350.org and contribute to help build the global movement to solve the climate crisis.
