New York Mayor Bloomberg at Climate Talks in Copenhagen

Tuesday, December 15, 2009


New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is in Copenhagen this week to take part in the Climate Summit for Mayors.  Last week, the Mayor passed his Greener, Greater, Buildings Plan, and this week he hopes to inspire leaders from other cities to follow suit. With cities around the world producing more than 80 percent of global carbon dioxide emissions, changes in urban systems can have green effects globally. We speak with Bloomberg from Copenhagen.  (click through for the full interview transcript)

How hypocritical it is of Mayor Bloomberg to set himself up as an environmental advocate and world leader, when he is destroying the most sustainable buildings in the city, our irreplaceable historic resources. Out of scale development and profit margin seem to be his primary focus!
