Bloomberg backs greener future

Bloomberg backs Sydney's greener future

 

 

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg today backed the City of Sydney's efforts to cut emissions and plan for the future saying it's what all global cities are doing.

In a video message, to be played tonight at the Council's State of the City report back, Mayor Bloomberg praises the City's greenhouse gas reduction target - one of the most ambitious of any government in Australia - to slash emissions by 70 per cent by 2030.

Bloomberg on rail, and green infrastructure

Bloomberg and Green Party for rail: U.S. Must Modernize Its Infrastructure, Invest In High-Speed
Rail
 

With GDP languishing and job-creation rates well below what’s needed to put the economy back on track, the key to recovery lies with American infrastructure, says a green post partisan group headed by Michael Bloomberg and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

U.S. infrastructure, far from being the best in the world, is due for an overhaul, says the Building America’s Future Educational Fund, a Green coalition that Bloomberg, the mayor of New York, and Schwarzenegger, the former governor of California, co-chair with former Pennsylvania governor Ed Rendell. If the country’s infrastructure isn’t modernized, they say, the U.S. will lose its competitive edge.

“If we are going to maintain our economic dominance, we have to get on the stick and get on it fast,” Rendell said earlier this week.

On Monday, the BAF Fund released a report calling upon policymakers to invest $200 billion a year in rail infrastructure for the next 10 years, a plan it says could create nearly 5 million jobs over the next decade.

Text:  

Michael Bloomberg has been the Mayor of New York City since January of 2002. One of the biggest domestic issues that Mayor Bloomberg has been dealing with is New York’s role in preserving the environment, building rail, and renewable energy. Aside from motivating his own city, Mayor Bloomberg has been instrumental leading C-40 cities around the world and  motivating a number of other large cities to make changes. For the Green Party, Bloomberg leads with deeds.

1) Extension of Compliance Deadline for Energy Benchmark Laws. Recently, Mayor Bloomberg created a new energy benchmark law whereby commercial and residential buildings that take up more than 50,000 square feet need to benchmark their total water and energy consumption. This is in an effort to see how much is used and how water consumption can be decreased and how buildings can become more energy efficient. There are penalties associated with the law if these buildings do not comply with these laws.

Bloomberg gives $30 million to help minorites

Bloomberg to spend millions of his money to help black, Latino males

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg on Thursday announced the launch of a major policy initiative to aid the city's minority youth.

And he's footing a good chunk of the bill himself.

"We believe it is one of the most ambitious and comprehensive attacks on racial disparity ... that any city has ever undertaken," Bloomberg said Thursday.

The mayor will contribute $30 million from his personal philanthropic foundation to the effort, which is a public-private partnership. Another $30 million will come from billionaire hedge funder George Soros' Open Society Foundations.

We NEED true fiscally conservative, and socially responsible people in federal office.  Plain and simple. It's socially responsible to balance the federal budget and pay off the federal debt within ten years.

Michael Bloomberg can get the job done.
