Mayor Who Couldn’t Handle Snowstorm to be UN Global Warming Envoy


alg-bloomberg2-jpg

In 2010, Bloomberg badly blew New York City’s snowstorm response because he was obsessed with charting the impact of Global Warming on New York. Then he blew the city’s response to Hurricane Sandy.

Now that he’s out of office, he can only fail upward and with these credentials, he was the perfect choice to become the UN Special Envoy for Climate Change and Cities.

UN chief Ban Ki-moon has appointed former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg as the first special envoy for cities and climate change.

Bloomberg will assist the Secretary-General in his “consultations with mayors and related key stakeholders, in order to raise political will and mobilize action among cities as part of his long-term strategy to advance efforts on climate change,” a statement issued by Ban’s office said.

Bloomberg has played a leading role in the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group, an international group of mayors created in 2005 and dedicated to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The C40 group, of which Bloomberg is president of the board, is due to meet in Johannesburg next week.

The Point already covered the plans for this summit under, “Soda-Obsessed Mayor of Illiterate City to Convene Climate Change Summit in World’s Rape Capital.”

In office, Bloomberg fought Global Warming by screwing up traffic with bike lanes and bus lanes. He called for painting roofs white and proposed wind generators on top of skyscrapers. And then he emitted a lot of hot air through his mouth.

But becoming a Special Envoy for the UN isn’t hard. Ban is practically giving these things away.

Last month, Ban appointed former Ghana President John Kufuor and former Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg as special envoys on climate change to drum up support for the planned September conference.

Do you want to be a Global Warming envoy? Call 1-800-UN-WASTE.

In April of that year, UN Director of Sustainable Development JoAnne DiSano warmly welcomed Mr. Bloomberg’s plans to reduce the strain on natural resources such as water, air and land by instituting a more energy-efficient city by rebuilding aging water mains, fostering greater support for mass transit, putting limits on vehicular congestion and creating more energy-efficient buildings.

If you have trouble driving around Manhattan, blame the United Nations, for more reasons than one.

But just to remind everyone that there is a politician out there more annoying and useless than Bloomberg, John Kerry had to chime in.

Mayor Bloomberg has hands-on experience confronting climate change in one of the largest cities in the world, while, at the same time, seizing the many opportunities that sustainable city management creates. I’m looking forward to the UN’s 2014 Climate Summit in New York next fall and delighted that Mayor Bloomberg will play such an important role in that event and the UN’s effort writ large.

I can’t think of a person better suited for this important new role.

In true liberal fashion, Bloomberg, couldn’t clean up after a snowstorm, but can manage to control the weather 50 years from now.

    This is horrible. The former mayor who was obsessed with soda and other things is now a special envoy for the United Nations’s “Climate Change ” committee. Bloomberg has already wrecked New York (which is now being wrecked at a faster pace under his Marxist successor, Warren Wilhelm, Jr.). I can’t imagine what the 2016 elections in this country would look like. What if Wilhelm decides to run for president and wins both the Democrat primaries and the general election? For starters, a Wilhelm presidency would destroy the American economy by completely taking it over as government property. Regarding foreign policy, Wilhelm would be more than happy to let Israel be destroyed by radical Islamists. And regarding Puerto Rico, a Wilhelm presidency would also be more than happy to take away American citizenship from 3.6 million residents of the island and throw the island to the Communist dogs of Castrogonia (Communist Cuba, which I also call the Great Satan of the Western Hemisphere) and the Cuban Raj (Chavista Venezuela, which I also call the Little Satan of the Western Hemisphere) I’m hoping that a Tea Party politician would win the election. If we can revise and modify the natural-born citizenship clause in the Constitution, I would support Ted Cruz all the way.

    “Multiculturalism” is a program that is FORCED upon EVERY & ONLY White countries.

    “Multiculturalism” is a program to turn EVERY White country into a non-White country.

    This IS geNOcide. WHITE geNOcide.

    If you are White, and you object to your own geNOcide, you are called a RACIST!

    Well guess what, my people, White people, are catching on very quickly to the following two things:

    1 – Multiculturalism is a code for White geNOcide.

    2 – Anti-racist is a code for anti-White.

    Edward,
    The topic is about the UN and climate.

    And, btw, the world is getting smaller and more people are living in it — multiculturalism is as inevitable as the sun coming up in the East. You may want the sun to rise from somewhere else, but it ain’t going to happen. Deal with it.

    Regarding Bloomberg, I think the UN need more men of action who have proven they can succeed in whatever arena you put them in.

    just shows that the UN is totally removed from reality. from human rights commissions lead by oppressive dictators to climate change commissions run by idiots .
