    CLIMATE SCIENCE SKEPTICISM GETS WINS

    Tom Steyer gets little payoff for millions spent on green issues

    Evan Halper, Mark Z. Barabak, November 6, 2014 (LA Times)

    “…California hedge fund titan Tom Steyer's $74-million [spending to bring climate change to the forefront of political debate and elect candidates committed to fighting global warming] yielded little payoff…[V]oters elected the most hostile Congress environmentalists have faced in years…The Republicans who won control are already making plans to roll back President Obama's signature emission reduction efforts, green-light the controversial Keystone XL pipeline…and cancel subsidies for renewable energy…[Steyer pointed] to hundreds of thousands of climate-minded voters newly enlisted in his organization, NextGen Climate, the emergence of global warming in the debate in several races, and the retreat by various GOP candidates from a platform of outright denial of climate science…[But] deep-pocketed, green-minded [Democratic] donors…are failing to get voters to set aside other concerns and cast their ballots on environmental issues…Steyer's group saw its candidates victorious in U.S. Senate races in Michigan and New Hampshire, and in state legislative races…But candidates they backed lost in [Colorado, Iowa, Florida, Maine, and Pennsylvania, and experts said climate change was not an issue. Skepticism] of climate science remains Republican orthodoxy…” click here for more
