  1. Really inspiring, especially appreciated hearing good things from Kevin Murungi of Global Kids about progress in other countries and his encouragement to work with the wonderful Donovan Richards and the rest of the City Council Environmental Protection Committee and the great Helen Rosenthal, and glad that our Public Advocate’s office is now involved as well. And thanks for all of you who braved the cold.
    Also helpful to have the index, thanks for that too, Environment TV – you’re the best, and that’s not just because you are our only TV outlet in NYC dedicated to environmental issues!!!
