Sierra Club: The Gulf Still Needs Us

This morning, I was reading an email from the Sierra Club, and one of the article headlines caught my attention: ‘The Gulf Still Needs Us.”  I couldn’t agree more, and it’s what has inspired me to take action and organize this expedition to the Gulf coast tomorrow.  I am looking forward to getting back down to the coast and connecting with the people in the local communities once again. There something unique about being there and hearing the stories of those who are affected face to face. We will do our best to capture these moments so we can share them here with you.

Check out the video that Sierra Club posted that shows their experience with some military vets that went out on the water as they describe the precarious position we are in as a nation due to our crippling dependence on oil.

This is a complicated issue, there is no doubt. We hope to dig deeper into this in the days ahead and bring back stories directly from the front line. We hope you will join us by following our posts as we go – be sure to check us out on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Flickr. And it’s not too late to make a donation of any size. Every dollar counts, and we (and in turn the local communities) can use all the help we can get.

Thanks for letting us share this journey with you.
