But don't panic! All you need to do is cough up more taxes to science experts like Michael Bloomberg, and the global warming apocalypse can be averted.
Sorry, I meant to say 'climate change apocalypse'.
Whatever - just give Bloomberg your money and nobody will get hurt.
MICHAEL BLOOMBERG: If you ask the public ‘is there global warming,’ is in ’50 years the earth going to be dramatically different or perhaps uninhabitable,‘ their eyes roll. Nobody can think 50 years in advance.Gee, it's too bad Bloomberg isn't running for President. I can just picture the bumper sticker:
MICHAEL BLOOMBERG: Your job is not to ask the public where they want to go and get behind them. Your job is to tell the public and convince the public where they should go, and lead from the front.
The Mayors of these cities are not asking the public whether they are willing to spend to live healthier lives and live longer. They are there to explain to the public that if they don’t spend that money they’re not going to live as long and not going to be as healthy. And then convince them to come along, reach into their pockets, pay their taxes, change their policies.
Bloomberg 2012: Reach Into Your Pockets, Pay Your Taxes, Obey My Commands
He'd be a shoo-in!
