    Michigan residents will likely be paying more for their electricity after a well-funded ballot initiative prompted the state’s largest utilities to adopt higher renewable energy usage. On Friday, DTE Energy and Consumers Energy — Michigan’s two biggest utility companies — announced a compromise with a ballot committee to dramatically increase their renewable portfolio standards. DTE and Consumers have agreed to establish a goal of at least 50 percent clean energy by 2030, which includes a pledge that 25 percent of their electricity sales originate from renewable sources by that same year. In return, Clean Energy, Healthy Michigan will essentially drop...

    Bullying, stealing, and racism are just some of the “signs” your child might be turning into a Republican, a video by billionaire liberal activist Tom Steyer’s NextGen America warns mothers. In a video redolent of public service videos about teen drug use, a mother laments that she didn’t recognize the signs her son was becoming Republican - until it was too late: “This Mother’s Day, talk to your child about the GOP. I wish I had.”

    Billionaire liberal activist Tom Steyer said Thursday President Donald Trump was a talented communicator similar to Adolf Hitler, adding he wanted Trump impeached before he did the kind of harm Hitler did. Steyer has spent tens of millions of dollars on a national impeachment campaign against Trump and put on town halls across the country to promote his efforts and rally Democrats. A town hall participant in Iowa told Steyer that Trump reminded her of Hitler, saying the Nazi leader also tore families apart. "[Trump] really is an incredibly skillful and talented communicator. He really is, which Hitler was, too,"...

    Billionaire Tom Steyer wants to impeach President Donald Trump — and he’s bringing his case to Denver. Steyer, a Californian who spent millions backing select Democrats in the 2016 elections, will host a town hall at Mile High Station May 16 — part of a series of similar events that his campaign, Need to Impeach, has hosted nationwide since March. The town halls attempt to “make the patriotic case to Democrats, Independents and Republicans about the need for impeaching Trump,” according to a Wednesday press release from the campaign. “According to a recent Quinnipiac poll, 70 percent of Democrats support...

    Push for increase in renewable standard has already drawn bipartisan criticism The push for a November ballot question asking Arizona voters to increase the state’s renewable mandate from 15 to 50 percent hasn’t received any monetary support from local citizens. Instead, recent campaign finance filings show all of the contributions for the drive have come only from California billionaire Tom Steyer’s NextGen America PAC. While the fact that Steyer was behind the initiative was never a secret, the new results are likely to increase the rhetoric—which has come from both Republicans and Democrats—that an out-of-state activist is trying to single...

    The widening chasm between progressive and establishment Democrats in California was exemplified this week by an endorsement from liberal billionaire and environmentalist Tom Steyer. Steyer waded into California Senate race Wednesday to endorse Kevin de León, the primary challenger to Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.), according to the Los Angeles Times. The race between de León, seen as the most viable challenger, and the long-serving Feinstein has intensified in recent weeks. The two have openly sparred over universal health care and how California's elected officials should respond to President Donald Trump. In his endorsement, the environmentalist billionaire applauded the 51-year-old...

    Dem Governor to Tom Steyer on climate change: 'The quieter the better' Gov. Tom Wolf of Pennsylvania summed up his climate plan as "the quieter the better" in a face-to-face meeting with billionaire activist Tom Steyer in 2017, according to emails from a source with knowledge of the meeting. The emails also show Wolf worried that jumping into a state-based climate "alliance" after Trump withdrew from the Paris climate accord would "have a negative effect in his state." The emails were obtained in an open records request by E&E Legal, a nonprofit focused on energy and environmental legal issues, and...

    Liberal billionaire Tom Steyer, who has been pushing for President Donald Trump's impeachment and recently spent $3 million to register Latino voters, also is working hard this week to resuscitate a California state bill that would end the process of demanding thousands of dollars in cash bail from suspected criminals. NextGen America, Steyer's flagship environmental advocacy firm and political action committee, has paid to sponsor Politico's California "Playbook" morning newsletter of top headlines every day this week. Steyer is using the California Playbook sponsorship to promote a special Sacramento screening of 13th, a documentary film on racism in the criminal...

    Tom Steyer has had it up to here. Not with us Republicans, it seems, but with his own Democrats, and he now plans to cut off their nose to spite their faces. The leftwing billionaire hedge fund speculator has announced he won't be bankrolling the Democratic National Committee as he has in the past, based on his dissatisfaction with congressional Democrats' refusal to continue the government shutdown and go down with it. He wanted them to just keep it shut, never mind that the public wasn't with him. Get a load of his reasoning as reported by the Washington...

    We hear a lot about “vested interests” in America these days. Here in California – it is the cry of Global Warming alarmists who are opposed to proposition 23 that is to be voted on in the November election. Prop 23 will suspend a “Global Warming solutions” act that will push up energy prices and drive even more jobs out of the state during one the biggest recessions in living memory. Understandably there is a lot of opposition to the Global Warming Act and Prop 23 is proving surprisingly popular in a state that practically invented the Green movement. Two...

    WASHINGTON — Tom Steyer, the billionaire environmentalist and Democratic political donor, announced Monday that his advocacy group, NextGen America, will spend $30 million to help Democrats retake the House in 2018, with the aim of eventually impeaching President Trump. Mr. Steyer also announced that he would not run for Senate or governor in California, as had been speculated. Mr. Steyer, who was a major donor to President Barack Obama’s 2012 campaign, emerged as the largest single political donor of the 2014 midterm election. His group spent $74 million to back Democrats that year, and $87 million in the 2016 elections....

    Questions have been swirling around why hedge-fund tycoon and Democrat mega-donor Tom Steyer didn’t disclose his role in a controversial campaign to get state and local governments to file climate change lawsuits against energy companies. Steyer’s super PAC, NextGen Climate Action distanced itself from the strategy, telling Politico’s Morning Energy in September” “We’re definitely not pushing this thing.” The theory is that energy companies including ExxonMobil, Shell and Chevron misled the public about climate change, just as tobacco companies lied about the effects of smoking, and should therefore be forced to pay costs for decades to come. For instance, they...

    Billionaire Democrat Tom Steyer is telling his party that they need to impeach President Donald Trump right now — and that waiting is a mistake. “The fact of the matter is that we believe he is dangerous to the American people now,” he told the UK Guardian. “We believe that waiting is a mistake and we believe the events that will occur over the next year will show that we are right.” Steyer did not specify which events he meant, but presumably it meant further criminal charges stemming from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into alleged Russian interference in the...

    In liberal billionaire Tom Steyer’s ideal world, his taxes would be raised, the coal industry would be no more and President Donald Trump would be impeached. “I am strongly opposed to even one more penny in [tax] cuts for rich people and corporations,” the prominent Democrat donor and activist declared in an Los Angeles Times op-ed Oct. 5. Instead, he wants the government to “raise taxes on the rich and use the money to invest directly in the American people.” Steyer is the founder of Farallon Capital Management, a hedge fund that made money through coal investments until 2014.

    The Hill ^ | October 12, 2017 | Brent Budowsky, opinion contributor
    California Democratic billionaire Tom Steyer should be applauded for his powerful efforts to support progressive causes and candidates and to strongly resist the egregious wrongs being done by President Trump. However, this week, Steyer went much too far by writing a letter demanding that Democrats running in the 2018 midterm elections make the impeachment of President Trump a central issue in their campaigns. Yes, as Steyer correctly charges, Trump creates a clear and present danger to the core values and institutions of the republic. But no, making impeachment a defining issue in the 2018 campaign is not a smart move...

    New York, June 24 – The American economy could face significant and widespread disruptions from climate change unless U.S. businesses and policymakers take immediate action to reduce climate risk, according to a new report released today. The report, “Risky Business: The Economic Risks of Climate Change in the United States,” summarizes findings of an independent assessment of the impact of climate change at the county, state, and regional level, and shows that communities, industries, and properties across the U.S. face profound risks from climate change. The findings also show that the most severe risks can still be avoided through early...
