New York mayor Michael Bloomberg’s organization Bloomberg Philanthropies (who focus on donations to areas such as health, sustainability, literacy, social welfare and the arts), donated $50 million to the Siera Club’s Beyond Coal campaign which is trying to fight new coal fired plants from being built and to phase out old outdated coal plants and replace them with cleaner alternatives, like solar and wind energy.
Mayor Bloomberg has his own reasons for donating to Beyond Coal, which he expresses in this video of the announcement he made on Thursday, July, 21, 2011.
