Michael R. Bloomberg quotes

Jun 29 2017 - Carbon

Climate change presents global markets with risks and opportunities that cannot be ignored, which is why a framework around climate-related disclosures is so important. The task force brings that framework to the table, helping investors evaluate the potential risks and rewards of a transition to a lower carbon economy.feedback

Jun 28 2017

Few people realise it, but the US is already halfway to our goal of a 26% reduction in emissions by 2025 – and Washington has had almost nothing to do with that progress. Cities, states, businesses, and citizens, together with the market, were responsible for it. None of those groups are slowing down now – and my foundation is working to help each group accelerate its progress.feedback

Jun 25 2017

It's really efficiency in government, how you marshal resources and how you deal with the public, explain to them, bring them along.feedback

Jun 25 2017

He gave me his private cellphone number, and I haven't called him. He has mine and he hasn't called me.feedback

Jun 22 2017 - London

In God we trust; everyone else bring data.feedback

Jun 19 2017 - Obesity

Today, for the first time in history, more people are dying from too much unhealthy food than they are from too little healthy food. This is a global epidemic that governments can no longer ignore, because there are many steps that they can take to tackle obesity and save lives.feedback

Jun 16 2017 - Trump Presidency

I thought long and hard about running. If you have three credible candidates, nobody is going to get 50 percent, … and if no one gets 50 percent it goes to the House of Representatives to pick a president. In my case, the House would have picked Donald Trump, and my obit would have been about only one thing: He's the guy that gave us Donald Trump.feedback

Jun 16 2017 - Trump Presidency

The simplest way is to have single payer. All the working people pay taxes, and you have to spread the burden over everybody. You have to insure a lot of people who don't need insurance because you have to use those monies to pay for health care for those people who do need it. It's going to get more lopsided with time, because the costs keep going up. The politics of single payer do not work at the moment, but maybe someday people will look at it differently.feedback

Jun 16 2017 - Brexit

Voting for Brexit is one of the stupidest thing a country has done. I am getting tired though of 'Make America Great Again.' It's pretty hard to argue that America isn't the greatest country still in the world by an order of magnitude. What we have to do in America is not take it back to a mythical past but take it and make it serve more of the public. The intelligentsia on both coasts forced on people change without explaining to them why and bringing them along.feedback

Jun 16 2017 - Trump Presidency

Minimum wage is one of the dumber ideas we have ever had. We should reduce the earned income tax credit requirements, because if we want to do something everybody should [be] participating, not just the few small companies that hire fewer people.feedback

Jun 16 2017 - Trump Presidency

We haven't solved the basic problem … that medicine is going to get more costly. In every other industry technology reduces costs, but I don't know if it's reducing health-care costs or employment.feedback

Jun 16 2017 - Trump Presidency

The New York Times did everything they could to elect Donald Trump. … They don't think of it that way. … They put Trump's name on the right hand column with his picture above the fold every single day. … So did CNN. … It was all Trump all the time back when he needed publicity. It's not just the government, running a company today is much harder, running a family today is much harder, because everything is available to everybody all the time. You've got to create jobs, the people at the bottom of the income later want the dignity of a job.feedback

Jun 13 2017 - Trump Presidency

We are already halfway there – and we can accelerate our progress further, even without any support from Washington.feedback

Jun 05 2017 - United Nations

Today, on behalf of an unprecedented collection of U.S. cities, states, businesses and other organizations, I am communicating to the United Nations and the global community that American society remains committed to achieving the emission reductions we pledged to make in Paris in 2015.feedback

Jun 03 2017 - United Nations

Trump says he wants to run the nation like he's run his business. God help us. I'm a New Yorker, and New Yorkers know a con when we see one! … Truth be told, the richest thing about Donald Trump is his hypocrisy.feedback

Jun 03 2017 - United Nations

Americans are not walking away from the Paris Climate Agreement. Just the opposite – we are forging ahead. Mayors, governors, and business leaders from both political parties are signing onto a statement of support that we will submit to the UN – and together, we will reach the emission reduction goals that the U.S. made in Paris in 2015.feedback

Jun 03 2017

The fact of the matter is, Americans don't need Washington to meet our Paris commitment and Americans are not going to let Washington stand in the way of fulfilling it. That's the message that mayors, governors and business leaders across the United States have been sending.feedback

Jun 03 2017 - China

That's the message mayors, governors, and business leaders all across the US have been sending.feedback

Jun 02 2017

Today, we want the world to know: The U.S. will meet our Paris commitment, and, through a partnership among American cities, states, and businesses, we will seek to remain part of the Paris Agreement process. We are already halfway there–and we can accelerate our progress further, even without any support from Washington.feedback

Jun 02 2017

We're going to do everything America would have done if it had stayed committed. While the executive branch of the U.S. government speaks on behalf of our nation in matters of foreign affairs, it does not determine many aspects of whether and how the United States takes action on climate change. The bulk of the decisions which drive U.S. climate action in the aggregate are made by cities, states, businesses, and civil society. Collectively, these actors remain committed to the Paris accord.feedback

Jun 02 2017 - United Nations

Americans are not walking away from the Paris Climate Agreement. Just the opposite - we are forging ahead.feedback

May 22 2017

I ended up taking a job that paid about 40 percent less than another firm was offering, because I thought it would be a better fit. It was one of the best decisions I ever made, even though I got fired after 15 years.feedback

May 22 2017

When I graduated from college, I didn't know what I wanted to do. And after I graduated from business school, I still didn't know what I wanted to do.feedback

May 16 2017

I don't remember anybody objecting to the smoking ban when we put it in, although a lot of people wanted to take my picture and a lot of people gave me one finger waves. If there was an easy solution to a complex problem, we wouldn't have the problem. If you want to make things better, you're going to be doing things that are tough.feedback

May 16 2017 - London

I do have the right to drive sheep across London Bridge and before I die, I want to do it one day at rush hour, just to see what happens.feedback

May 16 2017

Cities are where the rubber meets the road. The problems are in the cities and the solutions are in the cities.feedback

May 16 2017

We actually won that battle. I have always thought if we had not been stopped by the court, it would have died as an issue. Nobody would have known about it. But the fact that it kept coming back to the newspapers was a gift in disguise because people started to think, Holy God, maybe full-sugar drinks are bad for me.feedback

May 02 2017 - Russia

Market forces are sending coal the way of asbestos.feedback

May 02 2017 - Greenhouse gases

Even if [Trump] doesn't change his mind, it's the private sector that has reduced greenhouse gases. We are two-thirds of the way already towards the targets for 2025 without any help from the federal government. So we're going to make this regardless.feedback

May 02 2017

In the end ... you get down to having human beings making decisions.feedback

May 02 2017

Technology may let us talk together, and share information together, and analyze a few things together, but I wouldn't worry about going away from human decisions.feedback

Apr 23 2017

As it turns out, Trump's election makes the book's message – that the most important solutions lie outside of Washington – even more important and urgent.feedback

Apr 23 2017

But for everyone's sake, we should aim to put them out of business.feedback

Apr 23 2017

Washington won't determine the fate of our ability to meet our Paris commitment. And what a tragedy it would be if the failure to understand that led to an unraveling of the agreement. We hope this book will help to correct that wrong impression – and help save the Paris deal. My goal has been to save and improve lives. Some ways of doing that can be controversial at first, but end up being highly popular and successful. The fact is, coal in Appalachia is running out. Washington can't put generations of people back to work in a dying industry.feedback

Mar 28 2017 - Climate change

No matter what any elected official says, rescinding common sense climate change regulations and popular public health protections will not revive the coal industry or put thousands of miners back to work. Market forces, including consumer preferences and technological advancement, are the primary reason for the surge in cleaner forms of energy. In fact, even without the clean power plan, we are likely to hit its emissions targets ahead of schedule – because consumers, cities and businesses will continue leading on public health and climate change even when Washington won't.feedback

Feb 23 2017 - Great Barrier Reef

Some of the most disastrous effects of climate change are out of sight – on the ocean floor. In fact, unless we take urgent action, 90 percent of coral reefs are expected to disappear by 2050.feedback

Oct 11 2016 - Obesity

Smart policies can help to turn the tides on this deadly epidemic, especially those aimed at reducing consumption of sugary drinks, which is fuelling obesity rates.feedback

Mar 07 2016

The current presidential candidates are offering scapegoats instead of solutions, and they are promising results that they can't possibly deliver. Rather than explaining how they will break the fever of partisanship that is crippling Washington, they are doubling down on dysfunction.feedback

Feb 18 2016

I know that you don't solve problems by pointing fingers or making pie-in-the-sky promises. You solve them by bringing people together around common goals, promoting innovation, demonstrating independence and recognizing that compromise is not a bad word.feedback

Nov 13 2013

The site once again becomes a part of New York's continued growth, reconnected with the city that surrounds it and the people who live and work in this neighbourhood.

Oct 30 2012

The time to leave has passed, do not go outside, it is still very dangerous. And from now until the storm is well passed you just have to shelter in place. You need to stay whereever you are, let me repeat that, you have to stay wherever you are.feedback

Oct 27 2012
