“I think that any candidate for federal office better darn well have a plan to deal with the problem that the Trump science advisers say could basically end this world.”
(Joshua Paladino, Liberty Headlines) Liberal billionaire Michael Bloomberg said he will push 2020 presidential candidates to have a specific plan to prevent climate change, given his belief that humanity is on track to destroy the earth.
“I think that any candidate for federal office better darn well have a plan to deal with the problem that the Trump science advisers say could basically end this world,” Bloomberg said on NBC’s “Meet the Press, according to Politico.
Bloomberg wrote a column for the Des Moines Register on 3 Dec. 2018, in which he delivered his message about climate change.
“The most effective steps to cut carbon emissions – like switching from coal to clean power – reduce air pollution and create jobs,” he wrote. “Wind and solar energy are increasingly cheaper than coal, and they employ far more people.”
Bloomberg said he will likely decide whether to run for president in the first few weeks of 2019.
“Thanksgiving, Christmas, and then maybe a few weeks into January—that’s when you really gotta sit down, talk to your advisers and say, ‘Look, do I have a chance? I think I know why I would want to run … but I just don’t know whether it’s possible,” Bloomberg said.
Whether he decides to run or not, Bloomberg said he will call on every candidate to present a strategy that addresses climate change.
“I can tell you one thing, I don’t know whether I’m going to run or not, but I will be out there demanding that anybody that’s running has a plan,” he said during the interview with “Meet the Press.” “And I want to hear the plan, and I want everybody to look at it and say whether it’s doable.”
