Washington, D.C. — Carol Browner, Distinguished Senior Fellow at the Center for American Progress, released the following statement on New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s speech today that laid out a comprehensive plan to protect New York’s infrastructure from climate change:

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is leading the way in finding creative and sustainable strategies for cities to become more resilient and secure while addressing the impacts of climate change. America’s mayors are on the front lines of combating climate change that is fueled by industrial carbon pollution.
