ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Albuquerque Mayor Tim Keller and other community leaders said Friday that they’re ready to work with the Beyond Carbon initiative — a philanthropic effort by Michael Bloomberg — to promote clean-energy projects and policies in New Mexico.
“We know we can’t do it alone,” Keller said Friday as he listed Albuquerque’s own commitments to renewable energy.
State Senate Majority Whip Mimi Stewart, D-Albuquerque, and environmental leaders joined Keller at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center to celebrate the Beyond Carbon initiative.
Bloomberg, a former New York City mayor, has pledged $500 million to put the United States on track for a 100% clean energy economy. The money could be used to back political candidates and support clean energy policies throughout the country.
