Clinton and Bloomberg Join Forces to Save the Planet –

Posted by erauch, April 17, 2011

Bill Clinton and Michael Bloomberg announced the merger of their environmental groups, launching a partnership both men say could jump start environmental initiatives throughout the United States, and possibly, the world.

“What we want to do, by merging our efforts here,” said Clinton, standing inside Gracie Mansion next to Bloomberg, “is to hammer home the way you can change the way you consume and produce energy in cities, in a way that is good economics.”

The former president and term-limited mayor have teamed up on climate issues before, but the joining of forces announced today formalizes the arrangement. The Cities Program, which is part of the Clinton Global Initiative, and the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group, which Bloomberg chairs, will gather its members in Sao Paulo for a three-day conference starting on May 31.
