NYC Mayor Expands Windmill Proposal to Cover all City Residents

by William Yeatman on August 20, 2008

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg yesterday unveiled a plan to make the city a showcase of “clean energy” by placing windmills and solar panels on skyscrapers, bridges and coastlines throughout the five boroughs.  But after analysts realized that this massive project would still fall woefully short of meeting the city’s energy needs, the mayor expanded his proposal to cover city residents as well.  “To reach our goal of sustainable energy, we need everyone’s input, literally.  If you can ambulate, you can generate.” 

The Mayor denied rumors that police might ticket residents who persisted in walking the streets bareheaded.  “For the time being, I think we can count on the public spiritedness of our residents.”

Quick thinking, Mayor Bloomberg!
