Media Disguise Liberal Billionaire Steyer As ‘Climate Change Crusader’

Behind ‘green hero’ mask is a rent-seeking crony capitalist.

Steyer once claimed “I feel like the guy in the movie who goes into the diner and says, ‘There are zombies in the woods and they’re eating our children,'" according to a Washington Post article from Feb. 17, 2013, entitled “Billionaire has a unique role in official Washington: Climate change radical."

He left off the part where, in his analogy, he’d also be the guy who made a killing off of zombie killing.

That has been Steyer’s MO for years. He has invested heavily in liberal-approved energy sources, including solar and wind. And then did his best to make American sources of fossil fuels substantially more expensive.

At the same time, this ‘climate change crusader’ and his partners were building their fortunes on foreign coal that was being sold to China, which had none of the restrictions he had pushed for in the U.S.

According to The Wall Street Journal, “Steyer says that his investments are now confined to ‘green" enterprises.’ He's also created the TomKat Center for Sustainable Energy and the Steyer-Taylor Center for Energy Policy and Finance at his alma mater, Stanford, programs that research developments in the renewable energy field. The results of such research could determine the future of the U.S. energy landscape.
