Whose Finger Got Pulled Out There?

11/28/05 | by steveg [mail] | Categories: WiFi

Tonight I'm going to Pilgrim Church to learn how to make air monitoring buckets from anti-air pollution activist Denny Larson. Pointed out in Tremonter (which points to Ohio Citizen Action.

Denny Larson of Oakland, California,who works with communities around the world on solving air pollution problems, is coming to Cleveland on November 28-29. He will teach us how to build our own air pollution monitors using simple "buckets," and other ways of testing the air for chemicals and sulfur emissions.

The first (meeting) is Monday evening, November 28 from 6 to 9 p.m. at Pilgrim Church in Tremont, where Denny will teach us how to build the buckets and take air samples. The second is on Tuesday, November 29 from 1:30 - 2:00 p.m. in Ohio Citizen Action's office, where Denny will brief us about success stories from communities around the world, and help strategize about what to do about air pollution in Cleveland.

Man somebody is cutting the cheese out in the neighborhood. Let's see who it might be, collect some evidence to prove it, and if we can help them with their flatulance problem.

See you at 6:00 but call the OCA first at 216-861-5200.

nikoThis is an excellent subject. Steve, it would be great if if you can provide any further info from this. Te EPA offers on-line air pollutant monitoring with maps but it doesnt seem self explanatory or user friendly.

stevegAdam, Not too long.
They were trying to see who wanted to go on a "pollution patrol" that night and a couple we trying to coordinate for an early morning patrol. I still don't know who actually has the buckets.

Niko, there is another website that Denny pointed out that has real time (every 2 min update) of a series of sensors around a parimeter in San Francisco.

Scott, I don't read MAKE, but I follow the blog. See on my side panel.
