It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s Super Nanny! Can anyone else be a bigger PITA than Billionaire Bloomberg (excluding Millionaire Gore) and irrelevant at the same time? From the douche-bag diaries:
Mayor Michael Bloomberg, addressing a meeting on New York City’s recovery from Hurricane Sandy this morning, spoke of a future in a warming world with the stark reality of more such devastating storms, saying the city will lead the way in stemming climate change.
“We cannot solve the problems associated with climate change alone here in New York City, but I think it’s fair to say we can lead the way,” Bloomberg said during his speech, which was broadcast on local news channel NY1.
Today, Bloomberg announced he has set in place a team to craft concrete recovery plans for those hit hardest by Sandy and plans for dealing with the risks we face from climate change. “The biggest challenge we face is adapting our city to the risks associated with climate change,” Bloomberg said.
“We can’t just rebuild what was there and hope for the best,” Bloomberg said.
Mayor Bloomberg also said that the city was looking at climate change and storm impacts to the city’s critical infrastructure, such as its subway system (the largest in the nation), its tunnels and utilities, such as electricity and cellphone towers.
“We have to re-examine all of our major infrastructure in light of Sandy,” Bloomberg said.
