Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has an obsession with micro-managing people’s lives. He doesn’t want us little people to have guns, soda, affordable power, or good paying coal mining jobs.
Bloomberg’s latest work from his “Bloomberg Philanthropies” is a Leni Riefenstahl-worthy piece of propaganda titled From the Ashes and was previewed recently in Austin, Texas. According to an attendee, the film ends with the “fact” that coal kills 20 people each day.
If that is the case, then please explain this graph, which shows the correlation between affordable power, predominantly from coal, and increased quality of life including life expectancy and educational attainment.
The From the Ashes Web site instructs people to “help coal communities as America makes the transition to cleaner energy.”
But their words say otherwise…
During a reception prior to the screening, a guest overheard a “prominent Sierra Club member” say that there are “roughly 350 U.S. Sierra Club members” funded by the Bloomberg Philanthropies “who wake up every day with the sole purpose of shutting down coal mines.”
Nothing says “I care about coal communities” like billionaires and big-enviros shutting down coal mines and putting coal miners out of work.
