To help address the mounting climate change crisis, Michael R. Bloomberg launched Beyond Carbon, the largest-ever coordinated campaign against climate change in the United States. Beyond Carbon is working with advocates around the country to build on the leadership and climate progress underway in our states, cities, and communities to maximize the progress on climate change. Beyond Carbon is working to get the country on the path to a 100 percent clean energy economy and ensure that after the 2020 election, the next Administration inherits a country already well on the way to a full clean energy economy.
Transition to 100% clean power
Replace coal and gas with renewable and zero-carbon energy sources.
Replace oil burning cars and trucks with electric vehicles
Replace gasoline and diesel fueled cars, trucks, and buses with electric vehicles while simultaneously working to increase access to public transit.
Eliminate building emissions
Replace fossil fuels with electricity in buildings. Switching from gas and oil furnaces will help create a cleaner electrical grid, a key climate solution.
Modernize industry and infrastructure
Reduce emissions from manufacturing and other industries by promoting cleaner production methods and ending wasteful flaring and leakage of methane gas.
Repay our debt to coal producing communities
It is a key priority to establish the framework for a robust economic future for the workers and communities who sacrificed to produce the fossil fuels that built our modern economy. Beyond Carbon will partner with local organizations working to diversify the economic base, create new jobs, and to ensure the economic benefits of the clean energy economy are shared in all communities.
Participants in the Beyond Carbon project that are exempt under section 501(c)(3) will not engage in or support electoral activities.
