Democrat Presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg plans to attend climate talks in Madrid, to reassure globalists that despite 2016, the American people who matter still support UN climate initiatives.

Bloomberg at UN climate talks to push for US action

American presidential hopeful Michael Bloomberg will attend UN climate talks in Madrid Tuesday with the message that the US is “still in” the fight against global warming despite its looming withdrawal from the world’s climate plan.

This would put the largest historic emitter on track to meet its current obligations under the 2015 Paris accord, irrespective of Donald Trump’s decision to remove the US from the landmark deal.

Bloomberg will appear alongside Hollywood icon Harrison Ford and United Nations officials at the COP25 talks, currently in their second week.

Despite Trump backing out of the Paris Agreement, climate progress is happening in the US thanks to bold action from cities, states, & businesses,” he tweeted.

“Tomorrow, I’ll represent the US at #COP25 to deliver our America’s Pledge report showing how far we’ve come.”

Isn’t the USA lucky to be represented by UN Climate Envoy Michael Bloomberg.

  1. Bloomberg has usurped the power of congress and the executive branch. I don’t think he’s been elected to any federal position.
    Narcissist and hypocrite all rolled up in one.

  2. Isn’t this a violation of the Logan Act? Also, according to the article, no additional action is needed as cities and states are making progress on their own?

    • I’m not a lawyer, but I guess Bloomberg is not in a position to say anything about what USA does officially, so he maybe can’t break the Logan Act by opinionating like this? Nancy Pelosi, on the other hand?

      • It’s just Bloomberg voicing his personal opinion. There’s nothing illegal about that. And we are happy about that. We like it when our political opponents are free to make fools of themselves.

        • “with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof….”

          INTENT. His intent IS to let the other governments know that they should hold onto & even keep pushing the charade until a more favorable US policy comes around. “Don’t give up Italy, hold fast we will jump into the quicksand along with you in another 2 to 8 years; everyone else … please hold the line and wait for our leadership & monetary incentives”.

        • If this had been candidate Trump, the Democrats and the press would have been talking about indicting him under the Logan Act within 24 hours of making such a statement. But Bloomberg is one of their own, so he gets a pass.

      • Hugs, Logan act applies to any citizen. In fact, being in a (authorized) position to say anything about what the USA official does is what’s need for it to not be a violation of the Logan act. from the Wikipedia article: “The Logan Act (1 Stat. 613, 18 U.S.C. § 953, enacted January 30, 1799) is a United States federal law that criminalizes negotiation by unauthorized American citizens with foreign governments having a dispute with the United States. The intent behind the Act is to prevent unauthorized negotiations from undermining the government’s position”

        Bloomberg is 1) not authorized and 2) attempting to undermine the current government (IE the Trump administration) position. He’s clearly in violation of the Logan act here. However, he won’t ever be prosecuted for it (Only two people have ever been indicted on charges of violating the Act, the last of which was over a century and a half ago).

    • 18 U.S. Code § 953. Private correspondence with foreign governments

      Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

      This section shall not abridge the right of a citizen to apply, himself or his agent, to any foreign government or the agents thereof for redress of any injury which he may have sustained from such government or any of its agents or subjects.

      • Bloomberg has not been the brightest bulb in a very dim lot of bulbs recently.

        Nor has Bloomberg ever found telling gross falsehoods to be an obstacle to his ambitions.

    • Well, he has no shot at ever being president. But if by some miracle he did become president, the articles of impeachment for violation of the Logan act could be submitted as soon as the day he is sworn in. Hey what’s good for the goose….

    • (that last post of mine, for the humor impaired, should be read as having an implied /sarc tag at the end).

  3. Et tu, Bloomberg? A first-order forcing of Catastrophic Anthropogenic [Political, Economic, Social] Climate Change? Say it ain’t so.

  4. Shouldn’t he have just sent them an email? Really, there’s no need for him to put all that CO2 in the air. Makes one think he doesn’t actually believe in the scam.

    • He’s free to decide whether to travel via private jet or not. Apparently, he chooses to do so, while planning to restrict freedoms for middle and working class peoples.

      At lease we’re not Africans. He wants the poorest of these to continue to burn dung for cooking and heat.

  5. “Bloomberg will appear alongside Hollywood icon Harrison Ford”

    I hope Ford enjoys his Wagyu burgers while he’s there.

      • if redbird spoke, I assume that he would show himself as a self-centered bloviating blowhard;

        but he is what he is … I don’t think it’s fair to describe him as a phony.

  6. Hey Bloomberg!
    Ya you! Shut the fudge up!
    You might not like it but Donald Trump is still in charge as the President of the UNITED STATES.
    So go back down your hole and continue printing the lies, innuendo, and outright BSfiction your publications are well known for.

  7. The nub of the situation is that Bloomburg does not come with millions of American taxpayer dollars like the blessed Obama. So he will be of little interest unless he ploughs in his own.

      • it was a single billion (in two $500 million installments). The only thing stopping it from being the billions that Obama “pledged” is that Trump succeeded him and withdrew the US from the Paris nonsense.

  8. Oh come on you are missing the really important talks today it is #Gender Day today at COP25.
    Now get you gender fluidity on people.

  9. Oh we should talk about the funny hatchet job being done on article 6 with the current draft.

    It has now excluded biomass wood pellets used by power plants, those are still now classified as carbon neutral. Chop that native forest down people and claim them credits 🙂

    The phrase “the protection of human rights” is gone completely as I predicted but the lefties are seething. Brazil, China and Saudi Arabia stripped out of the human rights guarantee on the basis of “infringing on national sovereignty issues.” 🙂

    There is a hugely funny definition of a forest under the definition most of Australia will qualify as a forest. Plant a few tress and claim credits on the entire area 🙂

    • It’s when you chop and grind the wood in the USA and then ship it the the UK that the concept really makes sense. Nothing like burning all that diesel to get the wood across the Atlantic to make it truly carbon neutral.

  10. One thing is sure: -Too many count on after-Trump to subdue and subsequently loot the United States of America.

    • “after-Trump”

      Let’s hope we get four more years of Trump, but we definitely need to be thinking about the post-Trump era because the Democrats are not going to stop their illegal activities. Unless, of course, a bunch of Obama cronies go to jail over their attempts to overthrow the U.S. Constitution and the Will of the People in their efforts to oust Trump.

      If they are not punished, then the next dishonest authoritarian who gets the presidency will rig the system, like Obama and Hillary attempted to do, and that will be the end of Democracy in the United States. We will transition to a Chinese system with social scores.

      The Democrats were willing to do just about anything illegal to gain political power with the exception of murder (as far as we know) and the American people better do something about this if they value their personal freedoms, because the Democrats aim to take them away if given the chance. Let’s not give them the chance.

      • The Democrats were willing to do just about anything illegal to gain political power with the exception of murder

        Vince Foster, Seth Rich, and Jeffery Epstein (among others) might have something to say otherwise…. if they weren’t dead.

  11. His first amendment free speech rights allow him to spew whatever nonsense he likes.
    He could claim the Moon is a ball of cheese, and then use his money to prove it. He’d probably get a few scientist rentseekers willing to back him up for a fat grant.
    Any American who votes for him though is stupid beyond belief, IMO. But then there are some pretty stupid Democrats hungry for his money.

  12. So Michael Bloomberg and Harrison Ford are virtue signaling. I wonder how many billions of dollars have been spent over the last forty years to prevent global warming?

    My nephew had a birthday yesterday. I was there 41 years ago the day he was born. I clearly remember it was a cold and snowy day. This morning according to the radio news it is eighteen degrees F at Chicago’s O’Hare Airport. The weather this morning is approximately the same as that day 41 years ago when my nephew was born. I know climate and weather are different. But after 41 years one might expect a climate change to have some effect on the daily weather. But I don’t see any change. The weather today is just the same as it was 41 years ago.

    But of course Michael Bloomberg and Harrison Ford are very wise.

  13. I think that if Bloomberg thinks that the Paris agreement is still on for the US it probably would be a good idea if he acted as guarantor for the money that has to be paid to the climate fund. And when Donald gets in in 2020 and the UN is looking to distribute funds to poor developing countries like China they can send the bill to Michael. I’m sure he will gleefully write a cheque. ( just don’t try to cash it in a hurry).

  14. Seeing the photograph I thought “how much like Tony Blair he looks” – a crook if ever there was one.

  15. Small point here, Bloomberg stands to make gazillions on carbon credit trade.

    “Bloomberg’s vision is to be the leader in information, analytics and trading architectures to support low‐carbon energy solutions.”

  16. So, showing that if elected he would represent the UN rather than the US is something he thinks will help him get votes?

    Someone please explain to me how that works.

  17. Make no mistake, the phrase “we are still in” isn’t just an opinion. It is an ideology, and a slippery one, designed to deceive. The “we are still in” ideology encompasses millions of people in the US, who may not even be aware of it, but certainly didn’t have a say in it. Virtue-signaling businesses have signed onto it, because they love the greenwashing, at virtually no expense to them. They are trying to do an end-run (what else is new) around Trump, and in a sense displacing him. It’s insidious, and yes, could be considered treasonous.

      Biden has said the same things on a variety of important policy areas with foreign powers that impacts millions of Americans. It is yet another reminder that there is exactly one Party rule in this country even when it’s not in nominal power. The FBI and IRS are but minor gears in that backroom machinery.

  18. this is akin to Bloomberg telling the 1st Class passengers on the Titanic they have nothing to worry about- the ship can’t sink

  19. A climate coup d’etat has been declared.

    Stay in your homes for your own safety, remain calm, and you will be instructed on what to do and when to do it later. That is all for now…..little people.

    You may view Bloomberg Networks and CNN for information on the new order.

  20. Greta is there at COP25 apparently, driven in a Tesla. Someone has taken pictures of all the single use plastic waste in the foot well and back seat of the car. The back seat litters with cans on Heinz baked beans. Hypocrisy is strong in that one.
