Climate Billionaire Gives Up!? Tom Steyer Is Moving ‘Beyond’ Global Warming Activism

-

By Michael Bastasch

The single largest donor of the last two election cycles says he’s moving his activism beyond rallying young people against global warming to lead the “resistance” against President Donald Trump.

The move comes after San Francisco hedge fund billionaire Tom Steyer personally spent about $163 million in the last two election cycles supporting Democratic candidates and liberal causes, like fighting global warming.

Steyer saw his political stock rise after throwing millions behind efforts to oppose the Keystone XL oil pipeline, eventually creating his own activist group, NextGen Climate Action, to “bring climate change to the forefront of American politics.” NextGen intended to mobilize young people and support candidates whose top priority was fighting global warming.
