The Weather is Too Damn Cold

An open letter to New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio

Dear Mayor DeBlasio,

I am an attorney and resident of Flushing, and write to call your attention to a major climate issue in need of your prompt resolution.

As you are probably aware, this winter has been defined by extended cold, voluminous snow, and substantial wind chill.  As a result, we have experienced transit delays, dangerous road conditions, and difficulty enjoying the outdoor attractions of our fine city.

As our mayor, I urge you to act.  Cold temperatures of this magnitude are simply unacceptable for a major metropolitan city.  It  has slowed our business, and directly denigrated our quality of life.  If New York does not act immediately to improve our weather, we risk losing jobs and upwardly-mobile professionals to more successful climate programs in such places as San Diego and Miami.

In an age when global warming is being debated in Congress, it is incumbent upon you to ensure that some of the additional degrees are appropriated to New York.  This common-sense action will have an immediate and appreciable impact on each and every New Yorker, and would go a long way towards securing both your administration’s success, and your future re-election.

I understand that many of these issues were inherited from the previous administration, but I urge you to make weather improvement a top priority in the weeks and months ahead.
