Tom Steyer

Quote for the Day

James Delingpole on the blatant manipulation of the temperature records:

If the temperature records on which the entire edifice of the international global warming industry is based are a busted flush then we have all been victims of a scam so vast and all-encompassing it makes Enron look like a model of modesty and integrity. It also raises the question ? and I speak here, of course, metaphorically rather than literally: when are heads going to roll?

When indeed?

Delingpole’s entire article outlines the extent of the data fraud that is going on inside the global warming industry.

?Fiddling temperature data is the biggest science scandal ever,? says Christopher Booker, not pulling his punches. And I think he?s right not to do so. If ? as Booker, myself, and few others?suspect ? the guardians of the world?s land-based temperature records have been adjusting the raw data in order to exaggerate ?global warming? then this is indeed a crime against the scientific method unparalleled in history.

Sure you could make a case that Lysenkoism or? Hitler?s war to discredit ?Jewish science? were more evil but these were confined to discrete geographical regions under specific totalitarian regimes. What?s so extraordinary about the manipulations to the global land-based temperature sets is that they affect every one of us, wherever we live. ? Read more »

Am I the Koch substitute in NZ

It used to be the Exclusive Brethren, now it is me.

I am being demonised by the left wing just like the Koch brothers are demonised in the US.

But is it working?

The evidence of the election suggests that no one votes on my involvement in politics, and the whole Dirty Politics saga proves that.

Yet the Labour party and the Greens seem to be doubling down on the strategy of trying to demonise me.

How has that worked out in the US for the Democrats?

Democrats are doubling down on their attacks against the Koch brothers.

Prompted by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Democrats spent millions of dollars spotlighting Republican ties to the billionaire conservative megadonors Charles and David Koch. But despite Republicans ? and some Democrats ? publicly decrying the strategy after Tuesday?s GOP wave as an ineffective waste of money, Reid told allies on election night that he planned to continue hammering the brothers, according to an operative close to him.

And big-money liberal groups ranging from the Democrats? Senate campaign arm and House super PAC to the outfits run by billionaire Tom Steyer and conservative-turned-liberal enforcer David Brock all signaled that they intended to pursue anti-Koch spending and oppo tactics headed into the 2016 election. ?

How one global warming nutter spent $74M trying to influence the US elections and got zip for his efforts

The left wing love to demonise the Koch brothers and any one else who puts their own hands into their own pockets for something they believe in.

When their own billionaires do it that is some sort of heroic act, and when you consider that socialists generally only like to spend other peoples money you can understand why it is a small miracle when they spend their own.

Still the demonisation of right wing funders continues while tame millionaires and billionaires on the left are hailed as the new messiahs.

One such person is Tom Steyer who blew $74 million pouring money onto campaigns of those who supported action on climate change.

Though Harry Reid and his merry band of hypocritical Democrats spent the months leading up to the midterm elections ranting and raving about the evils of rich Republican donors like the Koch Brothers, the midterms single largest donor was liberal billionaire Tom Steyer who vowed to shovel money to candidates who would work to address supposed climate change.

Steyer spent $74 million on Tuesday?s elections and sifting through the Democratic carnage, it appears that Steyer has little to show for his vast expense.

Nearly $67 million was pushed to NextGen Climate Action, Steyer?s super PAC. Though Democrats have postured as if donor money was the single greatest threat to our election process, none seemed to take issue with Steyer?s role as financier of global warming alarmist candidates.

In Colorado, Steyer spent $7 million on Democrat Sen. Mark Udall who ended up losing to Republican Cory Gardner.

In Iowa, Steyer blew-through $4.6 million against Republican Joni Ernst and spent $781,327 bankrolling Democrat Rep. Bruce Braley. Ernst won the Iowa Senate seat, becoming the first female Senator from the State of Iowa.

However, beyond just simply candidates, Steyer spent copious amounts of money crusading to make climate change/global warming/global cooling/weather a high-profile issue in the midterm elections that, historically, have served as a referendum on the job performance of the president and the overall direction of the nation.
