Mike Bloomberg's Statement on E.P.A.’s New Coal Pollution Rules
By Mike Bloomberg - AUG. 21, 2018
The pollution limits the EPA is wrongly trying to roll back have never gone into effect. Yet emissions continue to shrink because Americans are demanding cleaner air and cheaper, cleaner energy -- and cities, states and businesses are delivering. Wind, solar and other clean energy sources are beating coal in the marketplace, which is benefiting both public health and the economy. That will continue to happen even if the EPA keeps spitting in the wind. Washington ought to lead, follow, or get out of the way.
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.
