Mayor Bloomberg gives $50 million to fight coal-fired power plants

Why, what a great man! Trying to save the environment !

I have a silly question as people are dropping dead in major cities because they cannot afford AC’s or cannot afford to run them, or power is being blacked out because we don’t have the generating capacity.

Why didn’t you donate this as a grant to researchers looking to clean coal emissions?

New York Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg announced Thursday that he will donate $50 million to the Sierra Club to support its nationwide campaign to eliminate coal-fired power plants.

Sierra Club executive director Michael Brune described the gift from Bloomberg Philanthropies, to be spread over four years, as “a game-changer, from our perspective.” The group will devote the money to its Beyond Coal campaign, which has helped block the construction of 153 new coal-fired power plants across the country since 2002. The campaign will expand from 15 to 45 states, plus the District of Columbia.
