The New York Post has uncovered a dirty little secret about the supposed environmentally-clean NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg. The mayor apparently doesn’t like to enter a hot car, but his city has the toughest anti-idling laws in the country. So, naturally, his underlings rig a window air conditioning unit to hang out his SUVs window while it sits.
But the eagle-eyed post noticed a type of do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do rhetoric:
When temperatures hit the high 90s a week ago, Bloomberg visited the Bronx Works senior center and called on New Yorkers to turn off “all non-essential appliances.”"But We do not like entering a hot vehicle, therefore We are exempt from this."
“It only takes a couple of minutes to cool off a room,” he said at the time.
