Michael Bloomberg

During his tenure as Mayor of New York City from 2002 to 2013, billionaire businessman and philanthropist Michael Bloomberg flexed his environmental muscle with a series of plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and fight global warming. His environmental advocacy has continued unabated since then. As well as continuing to push for a commitment from America to adhere to the goals of the Paris Agreement, in 2017 Bloomberg also co-authored the book ‘Climate of Hope: How Cities, Businesses, and Citizens Can Save the Planet’ along with Sierra Club Executive Director Carl Pope.
