Bloomberg cutting down trees worldwide


From the NY Times:

Like many other municipalities, New York City has used durable rain forest woods to build pieces of public infrastructure like benches and boardwalks. And although Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg has publicly promised to limit the use of such materials, some organizations have decided that the city is not moving quickly enough.

On Monday, as the 40th Earth Day approached, two environmental organizations, Rainforest Relief and New York Climate Action Group, issued a short video (above) that called attention to the city’s use of the wood.

“The mayor’s plan is too little too late,” said Tim Doody, the New York City campaign coordinator for Rainforest Relief. “At the current rate of destruction, most of the worlds’ rain forests won’t be around by the time his plan takes effect.”

Wonder what the League of Conservation Voters has to say about this doozy!

League of Conservation Voters is a JOKE. These are the same people who send out a scorecard last year without scoring QUINN. They didn't score her because her rating would be close to zero. This was to justify their paid endorsement of Christine Quinn who hardly passes and legislation to help the environment. Hey, this slush fund bitch killed the legislation to charge 5 cents for plastic bags. Idiot stated it was a tax but it was not a tax since it can be avoided simply bringing your own bag.

Fascinating! To think that I didn't know that rainforest destruction was caused by Bloomberg! I'll bet he's responsible for that volcano in iceland, as well. Thank you, Thank you Queens Crap!
