Authoritarian “environmental specialist” wants homeowners to learn how to control the flow of smoke
(INTELLIHUB) — In yet another shocking example of how out of control federal and local government bureaucracies have become, a county environmental specialist in Florida literally told a homeowner that he has to control the smoke coming off his BBQ grill from leaving his property.
Homeowner Scotty Jordan originally posted video of the exchange between himself and Pinellas County Environmental Specialist (“green police”) Joe Graham on Facebook where it immediately began to gain traction due to the absurd demands made by Graham.
“I can smell it again right now, but I’m on your property,” Graham is heard saying in the video. “You’re allowed to have it smell on your property, so that doesn’t count, but when I’m on the street, that’s when it counts.”
After being asked how they were supposed to literally control smoke, Graham laughably suggested moving the grill each time it is used to match wind directions which would absolutely not always stop smoke from being able to be smelt by neighbors.
People like Graham are the first wave of what will essentially be a sort of green police that goes around policing the once normal daily activities of Americans in order to “save the environment.”
Unfortunately, craziness such as this are becoming the norm across the country as cities and states fall in line with the EPA. As Infowars noted, “The local ordinance, similar to countless others across the country, falls in line with a longstanding effort from the Environmental Protection Agency that aims to limit everything from BBQs to wood stoves under the guise of reducing pollution.”
