I had to call something to your attention. Check out this op-ed in this week's Queens Tribune:
What a croc!!!! Our illustrious and environmentally concerned councilman has introduced legislation to prevent private citizens from owning sensors and other monitoring equipment without city permission. Of course, we all know how reliable EPA and other government-produced data is (it was OK to work at the World Trade Center cleanup without appropriate protective gear, right?).
If this legislation is passed, then we will lose the ability to monitor our own air, water, and soil and have to rely on potentially falsified info from not-to-be-trusted government sources.
I can't believe that Vallone is bragging about his environmental background, etc. I sure hope that someone calls him out on such hypocritical bragging.
P.S. here is more about it:
