New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has endorsed President Obama for re-election. In an op-ed for Bloomberg News titled "A Vote for a President to Lead on Climate Change," Bloomberg wrote:
One sees climate change as an urgent problem that threatens our planet; one does not. I want our president to place scientific evidence and risk management above electoral politics.
Presidents Bill Clinton and Ronald Reagan both found success while their parties were out of power in Congress -- and President Obama can, too. If he listens to people on both sides of the aisle, and builds the trust of moderates, he can fulfill the hope he inspired four years ago and lead our country toward a better future for my children and yours. And that’s why I will be voting for him.
