Bloomberg gives $50M to anti-coal effort
By Andrew Restuccia
New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg will donate $50 million over four years to a Sierra Club campaign to wean the country off coal power.
“Ending coal power production is the right thing to do, because while it may seem to be an inexpensive energy source the impact on our environment and the impact on public health is significant,” Bloomberg said in a statement Thursday. “Coal is a self-inflicted public health risk, polluting the air we breathe, adding mercury to our water, and the leading cause of climate disruption. ” (E2 Wire)
