Mayor Bloomberg "Greens" His Home

Thursday, April 09, 2009

Mayor Bloomberg has been pushing New York to become a greener city. He's instituted a one million tree planting program, required municipal buildings to become more energy efficient and today was on hand for the announcement that the Brooklyn Navy Yards would be partly powered by energy generated from wind turbines. But a reporter asked today, what is Bloomberg doing to 'green' his own life?

BLOOMBERG: In my home I've converted almost all of the lights and there's a handful that they don't make yet but to compact florescent bulbs and I walk around. We turn off lights when we're not using them. We turn down the air conditioner in the summer when you're not using it.

The mayor then asked the reporter what he'S doing to go green.

Bloomberg says he doesn't believe his household habits will make a huge difference but insists he's doing his part.
