New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has come up with an ingenious way to stay cool, while reducing greenhouse gases from the air conditioner in his idling limo.

He now wants staff to hook up a household A/C to his car while he is at an event, so the inside of his vehicle remains cold while the engine is off.

The New York Post photographed Bloomberg aides rigging the bulky appliance to the mayoral Chevy Suburban on Tuesday in what the paper said "could easily have doubled as a stunt on David Letterman's show."

Bloomberg spokesman Stu Loeser told the Post, "This is an experiment to be used on extremely hot days like the types we saw last week. Even with the vehicles parked in the shade, the temperatures inside can quickly rise to more than 100 degrees."

Three years ago, Bloomberg apologized after he was called out for keeping his vehicles running while his drivers waited for him, breaking the city's three-minute idling rule.

"There is far less emissions corresponding to the power of a single air conditioner on the grid than idling a V-8 engine," Loeser said.
