Congrats to the Sierra Club

And a hearty thank you to hizzonor Michael Bloomberg:

Today's $50 million commitment by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg's philanthropy to the Sierra Club's Beyond Coal Campaign will be used in North Carolina to promote offshore wind, a spokeswoman says.

Bloomberg's not only a man of vision, he's got a damned fine sense of humor, too:

The Sierra campaign aims to "end the coal era" and usher in cleaner technology. The billionaire Bloomberg appeared for today's announcement outside a coal-fired power plant in Alexandria, Va.
