Former Mayor of New York City and potential 2020 challenger Mike Bloomberg raised eyebrows among his fellow climate-change crusaders this week; jetting in “melting ice” from Greenland to London for a global warming art exhibit.
“Public art reminds us that it’s possible to think differently and boldly. With #COP24 underway in Poland, our hope is that #IceWatchLondon, a public art piece by @OlafurEliasson with support from @BloombergDotOrg, will inspire new action on climate. http://icewatchlondon.com,” posted the Democratic billionaire on social media.

According to the official website, the exhibit will analyze their “carbon footprint” and seek to “understand and minimize the environmental impacts produced by Ice Watch.”
Bernie Sanders came under similar fire from climate-change activists just days ago, when FEC filings revealed he had spent upwards of $300,000 in private jet travel in one month alone.
BLOOMBERG 2020? Michael Bloomberg to Drop $5 MILLION Ad Blitz on Eve of Election
Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg took another step towards his potential showdown with President Trump in 2020; announcing his plan to release a $5 million advertising blitz on the eve of the 2018 midterm elections.
“Michael R. Bloomberg, the billionaire former mayor of New York City who is considering a 2020 presidential campaign, took another step closer to that possibility Sunday with a $5 million national advertising effort that encourages voters to support Democrats in Tuesday’s midterm elections — and offers Bloomberg’s centrist politics as a counter to President Trump,” writes the Washington Post .
“Americans are neither naive nor heartless,” Bloomberg says in the ad. “We know that we can be a nation of immigrants while also securing our borders.”
Bloomberg raised eyebrows across the country weeks ago when he announced he had officially re-registered as a Democrat; paving the way for his potential run for the White House.

“At key points in U.S. history, one of the two parties has served as a bulwark against those who threaten our Constitution,” posted Bloomberg on social media.
“Two years ago at the Democratic Convention, I warned of those threats. Today, I have re-registered as a Democrat – I had been a member for most of my life – because we need Democrats to provide the checks and balance our nation so badly needs,” he added.
Bloomberg’s re-registration with the Democratic Party sets the stage for a potential showdown with fellow NYC billionaire businessman Donald Trump in just two years.
