NYC to Host Climate Week

Tuesday, June 23, 2009

Move over, Fashion Week! This fall, the city will be hosting Climate Week, in support of a summit on climate change at the United Nations. UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon hopes the September 22 meeting of world leaders will pave the way for a new deal in Copenhagen in December to slow global warming.

KI MOON: We have a lot of work to do, and not a lot of time. This is the time to act. So far the response by the world's government has been less than sufficient.

Mayor Bloomberg, who joined the Secretary General for the announcement, says Climate Week activities will focus on carbon emission reduction and alternative energy.
