Bloomberg’s Hidden Legacy: Climate Change and the Future of New York City chronicles the historic effort by Mayor Michael Bloomberg and city leaders to safeguard the five boroughs from the effects of climate change. Experts say New York’s accomplishments rank among the most comprehensive of any of the world’s leading cities, despite rarely capturing the attention of the public during the mayor’s tenure. This book from Pulitzer Prize-winning InsideClimate News is based on extensive interviews with the mayor and key players on his team.
It contains key moments that help readers understand the human side of the massive urban rethink, with real people making tough decisions, facing sleepless nights, contending with resistance and disappointment, and still pushing ahead into uncharted territory.
Praise for Bloomberg’s Hidden Legacy: “The definitive account of Bloomberg’s greatest achievement … The book reads somewhat like a dispatch from inside the campaign trail such as Game Change by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin.” — Ben Adler, Grist “Perhaps above all, Hidden Legacy reminds us why climate literature matters—why telling this story can change the way we relate to the challenge of global warming and improve our ability to solve it.” — Amanda Little in BOOKFORUM
