New York billionaire Michael Bloomberg joins Prince William’s climate effort.
PRINCE William has asked people to contribute more to the fight against climate change.
In an editorial for USA Today, he collaborated with billionaire Michael Bloomberg to advertise the duke’s £50 million Earthshot Prize.
The winners will be announced next month and will each get £1 million to further develop their “fix the earth” concepts.
“The same measures that progress technology and reduce carbon emissions also create jobs in new industries while safeguarding public health and the natural resources we all rely on – changes that will benefit future generations,” they wrote.
“A new call to action to the world,” they said of the prize. Mr. Bloomberg is the UN’s special envoy on climate ambition and solutions. He is the creator of the financial data firm Bloomberg.
