SEATTLE - Tired of paying retail prices for energy-efficient lighting, high-mileage cars and other commodities that reduce warming emissions? Well if you're a city government, Wal-Mart says it has a deal for you. And it also has a top pitchman to get the message across: Former President Clinton.
Clinton told more than 100 mayors Thursday that his foundation is teaming up with Wal-Mart Stores Inc. to save cities money on environmentally friendly supplies by buying in bulk.
"We will not get a global agreement on climate change unless you can prove this is not a burden," he said, making the case that cities have a key role in showing that curbing emissions makes economic sense. "This is the greatest opportunity we have had in our lifetimes."
