President Mike Bloomberg? A Run Would Juice Climate Action

No, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg hasn’t announced his candidacy for ’08 (or any vice-presidential aspirations for that matter). Not yet. But he has been doing some out of the ordinary globetrotting as of late. And he’s set to speak at the UN’s global warming conference in Bali, where nations are assembling to hash out a follow-up accord to the Kyoto Protocol.In the face of continued resistance from the Bush administration to assume any kind of global leadership on climate (and less than riveting positions from most candidates, as well a toothless Democratic majority in Congress), Bloomberg is an enormous breath of fresh and fearless air.

Which is precisely why SolveClimate has added Mayor Bloomberg to its Policy Tracker. The tracker assesses presidential candidates on their climate merits alone.

Bloomberg certainly has a proven track record of good environmental and alternative energy policy. He could more than hold his own with the Democrats on this issue.
