When #45 grows weary of this President gig…
and Pence ( and Mother) can’t stand the heat in Washington
let’s take a look at “The Best Replacement” Michael Bloomberg
Although Bloomberg served as a Republican mayor, many of his views lean towards the left of the political spectrum.
He is an avowed advocate for fighting climate change and recently donated
$30 million to the Sierra Club’s anti-coal campaign.
There is no such thing as CLEAN COAL
While Trump and his cronies extol the ‘virtues of coal’ the reality is that it represents an ever-shrinking portion of the American workforce, and is hugely destructive to the environment. There is no such thing as “clean coal.”
Bloomberg’s announcement is good for anyone who cares about the health of American cities and the global health of the environment.
It’s a key first step towards navigating around Trump’s gleefully nihilistic policies but is still only a first step.
For the nation to prosper, more prominent business and tech magnates need to rise to the occasion and offer similar programs.
All Hail, Bloomberg!
Mayors for Climate Protection meet in Miami – sidestepping #45
“..Rather than bemoan President Trump’s decision this month to pull out of the Paris Agreement, an accord signed by 195 nations to battle rising temperatures, many Republican and Democratic mayors here said the move had re-energized them.
A separate effort by Eric Garcetti, the mayor of Los Angeles, and a group whose members call themselves the Climate Mayors also picked up support here; more than 300 mayors have signed a document to abide by the Paris accord and “intensify efforts to meet each of our cities’ climate goals.”
