Bloomberg Pledges $500 Million to End Coal

$500 million

Michael Bloomberg “will donate $500 million to a new campaign to close every coal-fired power plant in the United States and halt the growth of natural gas,” the New York Times reports. “The new campaign, called Beyond Carbon, is designed to help eliminate coal by focusing on state and local governments. The effort will bypass Washington, where Mr. Bloomberg has said national action appears unlikely because of a divided Congress and a president who denies the established science of climate change.”
