"Mike Bloomberg is a fan of bold statements and big commitments. In a tweet Thursday night, the billionaire former mayor of New York City said he would spend $500 million on Beyond Carbon, which he described as “a coordinated campaign to take on the climate crisis.”
“This is the fight of our time,” Bloomberg said in his tweet, where he linked to a New York Times article that details his aims, including shutting down every coal-fired power plant in the U.S. and stopping the growth of natural gas"
If he really believes that we are having a climate crisis, then this is more evidence that even rich, successful guys are not immune to being hoodwinked by the hijacking of climate science for the political agenda but it's no coincidence that he is also somebody with the same political agenda.
"Billionaire philanthropist Michael Bloomberg is preparing to spend at least $500 million from his own pocket to deny President Donald Trump a second term, according to Democratic operatives briefed on his plans." -roughly $175 million more than the Trump campaign spent over the course of the entire 2016 election cycle-
