Bloomberg Considers Complete Cancelling of Coal Power to Combat Climate Change

For nearly the entirety of the 2020 race, Democratic candidates have been looking for ways to differentiate themselves from the extraordinarily large field.

The top tier of candidates vying for a spot on the 2020 ballot has always existed.  It had to, simply for the sake of differentiating between the never going to win candidates like spiritual guru Marianne Williamson and the all-too-likely former Vice President Joe Biden.

But the constant shuffling of this top tier has emboldened a could of latecomers to the race, who were somehow convinced that there was blood in the water.  (Spoiler alert:  There wasn’t).

One such newly-minted entrant is billionaire and former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg who, despite his name recognition and willingness to spend beaucoup bucks on advertising right out of the gate, has failed to cross the 5% threshold in polling as of yet.

Now, in what is likely an effort to lock down the climate change demographic of the Democratic voting bloc, Bloomberg is pushing some radical ideas.

Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg is calling for a 50 percent reduction in carbon emissions over the next 10 years to battle climate change.

To achieve that goal, the former New York City mayor and multi-billionaire business and media mogul on Friday unveiled a plan that would shutter all 251 remaining coal plants across the country by 2030 and replace them all with clean energy. He would also phase out gas-fired power plants.

At a speech in Alexandria, Va., Bloomberg warned that “we have to start working as hard as we can building a 100 percent clean energy economy because the alternative is just too bad for all of us.”

Standing at a podium with an ‘END COAL 2030’ campaign banner, he highlighted his goals – ensuring 80 percent clean electricity by the end of his second term in the White House, and moving the country toward 100 percent clean energy by 2045 or 2050.

Coal power, and the industrious swath of working class Americans that it takes to produce, became a bit of a muse for the candidates in 2016’s election as well, with Hillary Clinton receiving a great deal of backlash during her visits to the coal country meccas of West Virginia.
