Climate Fear Monger Michael Bloomberg to Deliver Commencement Speech at MIT

Michael Bloomberg
So much for scientific rigor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

The university has announced it will have as its 2019 commencement speaker the climate fearmonger Michael Bloomberg. He is the 10th richest man in the United States, according to Forbes.

He is considering a run for president on the Democratic ticket and remains active in the area of climate change. He currently serves as the U.N. Secretary General’s Special Envoy for Climate Action, which, according to a U.N. press release, means Bloomberg “support[s] the Secretary-General’s climate strategy and efforts towards the planned 2019 Climate Summit at United Nations Headquarters.”

The release added that both Bloomberg and the U.N. Secretary-General believe that the emissions gap “needs to be closed soon to limit global temperature increase to below 2°C.”

Bloomberg's launch into great wealth came about as a result of his curious access in the 1980s to the Federal Reserve Board "inside quote" during a period when the Fed did not announce its interest policy moves publicly.

It does not appear he is going to bring this up at the commencement address.

“As an engineer who started a tech company in the early days of the computer age, I’m looking forward to addressing this year's graduates as they begin their journeys,” Bloomberg told MIT News.

Engineering had nothing to do with it. It was all about curious access.
