SUNY Distinguished Service Professor Arthur Kopelman, Science and Math, recorded an episode of Long Island Business Report, a program that appears on public television station WLIW, which serves Nassau and Suffolk counties, New York City, and parts of Westchester County, New Jersey, and Connecticut. The program focused on local efforts to reduce the carbon footprint, bring alternative energy resources to Long Island, eliminate unnecessary pollution from sources like gasoline leaf blowers and gas-powered vehicles, and clean up the water supply.
Kopelman, who is president of the Coastal Research and Education Society of Long Island (CRESLI), shared his expertise on marine mammals and marine ecosystems, and Enrico Nardone, executive director of Seatuck Environmental Association, addressed water quality.
Long Island Business Report airs Wednesday at 7:30 pm and repeats on Friday at 5:30 pm and Sunday at 10 am. Segments of the program are also featured on MetroFocus, which broadcasts on WNET13 New York, WLIW21 New York, and NJTV in New Jersey.
