A new video by Michael Bloomberg, "An Optimistic Conversation ... About Climate Change," takes a bold stance on the future of climate conferences.

The good news is we're going to make the [Paris Climate Conference] goals without the federal government.

What's next: Bloomberg today publishes a new book with environmentalist Carl Pope, "Climate of Hope: How Cities, Businesses, and Citizens Can Save the Planet," where the former New York mayor writes: "Washington will not have the last word on the fate of the Paris Agreement in the United States. Mayors will—together with business leaders and citizens from all over the globe."
