The Hypocrisy Of Michael Bloomberg

Little send away tweet to Mike Bloomberg as he spends his last weekend in power, sunning himself at his Bermuda home:

Bloomberg pontificates about environment all the time, but few individuals in this world have as big a carbon footprint as the little mayor with the big name brand logo on everything he owns (BLOOMBERG!!!):

Mayor Michael Bloomberg now owns 13 properties around the world, including three pieces of property in Southampton.

In addition to the $20 million, 35-acre Ballyshear estate he bought in 2011, he has acquired an adjacent home and, separately, a neighboring 4.8 acre piece of "vacant unimproved land."

He acquired the additional properties last summer, and they each cost him at least $500,000.

That is in addition to his estate in North Salem, N.Y., which includes two houses and where his daughter Georgina rides horses; his home in Armonk; his condo in Vail, Colo.; his mansion in Bermuda; a condo in New York City that he acquired 13 years ago; a house in Wellington, Fla.; his London estate; his Upper East Side brownstone; and the Upper East Side headquarters of his philanthropic operations.

Bloomberg's property interests, and other details about his personal financial goings-on, are detailed (vaguely) in his Conflict of Interest Board financial disclosure report and a version of his 2012 tax returns, both of which were made available for review by reporters this afternoon in the offices of Bloomberg's longtime accountant, Geller & Company.

Is there anybody in the world more full of crap when it comes to environmentalism than Mike Bloomberg?


  1. Carmen Farina is appointed...!!!

  2. Until the appointment is official, I remain skeptical. Too many rumors and too much delay around this in the past.
