    This guy is a major asshat. And he's gonna spend a lot of your money. Better not drink big cokes!
    More and more scientists are saying that we are entering a cooling period- temps over the last 3 years are down.

    Please don't bring up global warming again. Fucking subject descends into madness in less than three responses.

    I can't stand Bloomberg, but what's the harm here?

    if you read the article it hints they are going to spend $hundreds of millions

    Two top Bloomberg aides who oversaw the study underlying the speech, Seth Pinsky and Deputy Mayor Caswell Holloway, wouldn't hint Monday at what the suggestions would be, what they might cost or how they might be financed. Many key decisions likely will come after Bloomberg's third and final term ends this year.
    Bloomberg said last winter the study would examine the pros and cons of building berms, dunes, levees and other coast-protection structures. But he has historically been cool to the idea of massive sea walls -- and emphatic about not suggesting that people retreat from coastal communities.

    Trying to effectively deal with America's awful diet and global warming from a city level? It really does more harm than good as his efforts will not generate any detectable improvement to Americans (or New Yorkers) health and waistlines. That just gives fodder to the red meat, red state and red neck crowd who applaud ignorance as though it's a virtue.

    Stick to making the trains run on time and picking up the trash.

    A major cooling phase is due by 2040, if historical cycles prevail. Many will starve to death.

    Demagogues have always used stuff like this to gain power. The sad fact is that most people are sheep and need to be led. This makes them vulnerable to this sort of claptrap. The idea that one can "measure" global temps within fractions of degrees, much less forecast it over decades, indicates just how gullible people are and how ignorant they are of the massive number of variables to be accounted for.

    I can't wait to see the size of the ladders Beth asks Howard to buy so she can climb up to the beach out east and in palm beach.

    I read it; it said many key decisions will come after he's out of office. To me it seems like he's just trying to broach the subject and bring this to people's consideration. You might be right, I just didn't get that from the article.

    This is all just a ploy to get all the peasants' cars out of the city so only the filthy, pollution-belching buses, the cabs and the wealthy's limousines can have the streets to themselves.

    He's the biggest douchebag the city's ever had for a mayor.

    Bloomberg is a giant tool. Doesn't change the fact that the icecaps are melting. Which (and I'm not a scientist) leads me to believe the earth's heating up, not cooling.
