    Another example of “smoke & mirrors” politics. Past time to revisit – and consider recalling – some of these misleading “greenwashing” policies and politicians. As always, follow the money. Demand specific environmental intentions and plans of NYS candidates BEFORE voting for them.

    I bicycled across the USA in 1985. For work, I have traveled extensively throughout the USA. To me, the Adirondacks are the most beautiful place in the world. I do not like cheaters. Greenwashing is the WORST kind. They make money on FALSE claims of helping the earth. I fused my passion and love for all things bicycling, wildlife (forests), and business by filing for patent protection on a product we at The Dandy Horse call VIDAT. It stands for Verify, Inspection, Demonstration, Analysis, and Testing. By using VIDAT we create Empirical data regarding when and where a cyclist rode. If an employee rode to work and did not drive a car we can prove it. We can also determine the amount of Carbon Dioxide NOT produced during the commute. To use this represents something better than the absorption of Carbon. We hope to create Carbon Credits and sell them into a carbon exchange. NYS should use this value to build safer bicycle pathways. Chloe, may we chat about this? I love the Empire State Trail and this will make it safer.
