Michael Bloomberg Promised $15 Million to Fund United Nations Arm for Paris Climate Agreement

Michael Bloomberg’s philanthropic organization, Bloomberg Philanthropies, said it will pull together $15 million [1] to help fund the United Nations’ arm that oversees the Paris climate change agreement. Bloomberg is the former liberal New York City mayor, an anti-NRA and anti-gun rights advocate, and now will spend his own money to fund climate change management at the United Nations.

This was in response to last week’s announcement by President Donald Trump that the U.S. will withdraw from the agreement, which was put into place by predecessor Barack Obama.
