Quoting from Bloomberg Foundation’s site, https://www.beyondcarbon.org, Michael Bloomberg has committed another $500 million to support climate champions in local and state politics: “Building on his climate work, Bloomberg’s Beyond Carbon initiative will:
- Win state and local policy changes. Beyond Carbon will work with state and local organizations to pass climate and clean energy policies, including 100% clean energy laws, targets and timetables to phase out climate pollution, and implementation of programs to expand low-carbon transit, speed up the deployment of electric vehicles, get pollution out of buildings, and promote low-carbon manufacturing.
- Grow t he climate movement. Beyond Carbon will help to grow the climate movement through partnership at all levels including expanding support for grassroots organizations and frontline communities.
