Bloomberg on Terrorism, Nukes and Global Warming

After giving a speech at the United Nations about climate change, Michael Bloomberg told reporters that stopping global warming "is just as important as stopping nuclear proliferation" and "fighting terrorism."

Bloomberg concluded by saying the presidential candidates aren’t talking about this issue and that "we have to stop this craziness of destroying our planet."
