Mike Bloomberg’s Statement on California’s Lawsuit to Protect Federal Fuel Emissions Standards
MAY. 01, 2018
The EPA cannot stop Americans from taking action on climate change. The 17 states joining California in this suit are part of a broader movement of states, cities, and businesses that are driving down emissions without any help from Washington. The EPA would have better luck trying to require horse-and-buggies than they would trying to stop the push for cleaner vehicles.
U.N. Secretary-General's Special Envoy for Cities and Climate Change and President of the Board of the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group.
IN MIKE'S WORDS
There are so many facets to climate change that make it difficult to address, but you don’t give up just because it’s difficult. You work harder.
70% of the world's greenhouse gas emissions come from cities.
Cities also present the greatest opportunities for protecting the environment. Mayors around the world are rising to the challenge.
