We’ve known New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg to be a pretty eco-friendly guy for a while now, what with his vegetarian tendencies and his fight to keep bike lanes. But I’m not sure any of us knew that he was this eco-friendly.

Mayor Bloomberg has donated a monumental $50 million to a campaign fighting against coal-burning power plants run by the Sierra Club. The gift will help the organization to boost the influence of its Beyond Coal campaign, and is also the largest donation to a green cause that Bloomberg has ever made.

The donation almost matches the amount that the Koch family has donated to keep oil and coal going, which is reportedly around $55 million. 

The goals of the Beyond Coal campaign are these: shut down coal-burning plants and replace them with clean, renewable energy in order to cut America’s use of coal energy from the current 50% of total energy use down to 30% within the next decade. To find out more, go to beyondcoal.org.
