NC leadership can learn a thing or two from NY Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

At the National Clean Energy Summit, the mayor announced PLAN NY, which will foster the switch to renewables and grow green infrastructure right in NYC; plans are in place for windfarms off the coast and solar fields just outside the city. The mayor also called for federal leadership on building a national grid for renewables; oil magnate T. Boone Pickens stressed similar needs for leadership, and Al Gore reiterated that a renewables grid could be finished in ten years.

More interesting proposals resounded at the meeting, such as eliminating carbon emissions for all new buildings by 2030.
