Cuomo, Bloomberg push to protect NYC, cite climate
Bloomberg, an independent, noted there is a long, raging political and academic debate over climate change that is delaying action.
"Climate change or random chain of events, only time will tell," Bloomberg said.
Cuomo, a Democrat, called climate change "a controversial subject."
"That's a political debate I don't want to get into ... I'm talking about the frequency of extreme weather situations," he said. "I believe it is going to happen again. I pray it does not."
