Bill Clinton got caught checking out Governor Hochul as she delivered remarks.
Maybe it was the blue dress?
Former President Bill Clinton this week joined NYC Mayor Eric Adams and NY Governor Kathy Hochul to promote the release of the “Empire Building playbook” – a blueprint to make buildings climate-friendly.
Bill Clinton delivered remarks at the Empire State Building.
“If we could do an Empire State job on every sizable building in every city in America in the next two years, we would probably buy 20 years of more time before the worst consequences of climate change come down on us like a ton of bricks,” Clinton said. “And we would end a lot of the political divide, because how can you be against doing more with less? How can you be against creating more jobs for innovative companies.”

“President Clinton, our 42nd president, he set this course of action in place about 2007, 2009,” Hochul said, “and the support of the Clinton Global Initiative and the climate initiative is really a partnership that we needed to have to get this even further today.”
“We’re making a decision that the largest climate polluters we know are not those factories anymore,” Hochul said. “They are buildings. So we tackle the buildings, we solve the planet crisis and it began in a room like this right here today and all of you are part of it.”
As goes New York, so goes the nation and the world — and we have the most ambitious emission reduction targets in the country!
