I would be surprised if that was less than the thousands. We cannot do enough for Puerto Rico. We have more and more and more we have to do. We have to be committed to Puerto Rico for the long haul.

We want to surpass that now, because the bottom line is, if the United States of America is going to waver on addressing climate change, then cities or states have to step up.

Even though there are problems in the subway system, I think they pale in comparison to the problems on our roads. Avoid driving whenever humanly possible.

I have throughout my life, so I'll keep doing that. I haven't seen the details. I think the M.T.A. needs to recognize that they've got to do something quick here. Now I will do my disclaimer upfront: The M.T.A. is run by the State of New York and the
