West Virginia Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin, says the former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg’s commitment to close all US coal-fired power plants would be the hardworking people punish, of his condition.

Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W. V., has argued that philanthropist Michael Bloomberg, new carbon initiative would want to “punish” his voters and failure in the fight against climate change, in the way that it is.

Bloomberg announced on Friday a 500 million US Dollar donation for its Carbon initiative, which seeks to the at least one third of the country’s coal-fired power plants shut down in favour of clean energy. Sen. Manchin responded to the news during the Wednesday appearance on “Fox & Friends” by questioning why Bloomberg would, away from the people of his state, by people who have “the reputation for this great country so many times.”

“I told mayor Bloomberg, why do you use $500 million to the dignity of work, and those who have done these mountain people?”, he said. “Help us, the pension scheme I can get McConnell, Mitch, to move away from, to give you the retirement you deserve.”

After this is done, Manchin said the United States should begin to use to follow in the footsteps of other countries, the creation of cross-party solutions for climate change and the development of new technologies, fossil-fuel, we have fuel already.

“Asia, India, and China, and with more coal-fired power plants than ever before. By 2040, you will find 50 percent dependent on coal, and we need that technology,” Manchin said.

“The markets will change. People migrate to the cheapest form of energy, but now you must reliable energy. Fossil offers-we will use you in a clearer way and we can do a lot more,” he continued.

Manchin went on to discuss the Green New Deal, which he said is “a practical approach”, but their support for the former US Secretary of energy Ernest Moniz, the proposal for a “Green Real Deal.” In an op-ed for CNBC, Moniz argues in favour of innovation in the technology that change the way we consume energy, the promotion of the use of electrification, renewable, gas and the use of carbon dioxide.

Most importantly, Manchin concluded, it is imperative that we stop politicizing climate change, and to impress on our citizens and those around the world about the very real consequences it has.

“We are the only nation that makes climate change a political divide. No other country. You move in technological innovation, not elimination,” he said.
