Beyond Carbon is Big Thinking on Climate Action

NEW YORK – Bloomberg Philanthropies announced a massive new "Beyond Carbon" initiative to combat climate change nationally.

Following is a statement from Natural Resources Defense Council President Rhea Suh:

“The need for aggressive climate action has never been so urgent.
