CPR With Tony Rose

March 14, 2019 // 0 Comments

  Generally we environmentalists hear about saving animals,  preventing damage to nature and how people forget that we humans are very much a part of the environment.  Well, in this video by Pat Brady of the Staten Island Community TV show, Environmental Issues, guest Tony Rose talks of just that:  through learning CPR we consider people part of the environment and worth saving and preventing harm to. Tony is a retired nurse, a 20 year++ certified Basic CPR (Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation) and Advanced CPR instructor, a kayaker, a board member of the Staten Island Natural Protective [...]

April 28, 2018 // 0 Comments

  Enjoying our environment can sometimes be interrupted, as is happening now on Staten Island. Imagine having to walk, run or bike across an 8 lane avenue, in order to get from one park to another! Add to that “Left Traffic Turning Lights” and a “ Right Turn Only After Stopping” traffic sign but have no timing, no signs, no traffic buttons for pedestrians, runners or bikers, and what do you get? Besides a number of people who won’t “Stop” before making any turns and swerve around pedestrians and other cars, as we’ve all experienced at times, we have a VERY UNSAFE, hardly [...]

Groups Unite Against Gas and Nuclear Power in Clean Energy Standards Proposals

June 18, 2016 // 0 Comments

On June 16, 2016, a group of concerned citizens representing grassroots organizations came together to express their concerns and raise questions with the Public Service Commission on the role of gas and nuclear power in the Clean Energy Standards. Calling nuclear power clean and carbon free, as is done in the CES is simply not true. Mislabeling it in the CES provokes deep distrust of the process and calls into question both the methodology and integrity of the Commission.   If we are to move towards a truly green energy policy coal, oil, gas and uranium must be left in the ground.  Tier 3 [...]
