February 18, 2010: Operation Free - a New Military Mission to Secure America with Clean Energy

This week Green Acre Radio catches up with vets on a mission - to secure America with Clean Energy. The mission, called "Operation Free," was kicked off last month as a nationwide bus tour. The bus rolled through Washington State last week before heading to Montana, the Dakotas and points beyond. The tour highlights the connection between climate change and national security. On a wet and rainy day vets and others met with reporters inside the bus to speak about their personal experiences in war zones and about how oil is funding "our most dangerous enemies, making America vulnerable and causing destabilizing climate change."
