Liberal Mega-Donor Wants to ‘Penalize People’ Who Add to ‘Climate Risk’

Speaking in New York City last week, Wall Street billionaire Tom Steyer outlined his vision for penalizing people whose actions may contribute to climate change.

“We need to reward people whose behavior reduces climate risk and penalize people who add to it,” Steyer said. “If we can get this right, I think there’s no doubt that our economy is going to continue to do very well.”

Steyer’s comments came at an event with several wealthy businessmen—such as former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg and former bankers and government officials Hank Paulson and Robert Reich—to unveil a report from Risky Business, an economic analysis of the financial impact to be caused by climate change…

…NextGen Climate Action, a multi-million dollar political action committee funded by Steyer, has already beefed up the Democratic Senate Majority PAC with more than $5 million in hopes of guaranteeing the issue of climate change remains a political issue in many key states. Key union groups have similarly received funding by Steyer.

CAJ note:  Who decides which of us is a risk to the environment since, technically, we all use energy, transportation, technology, etc? Will these millionaires and billionaires be taking the train or flying coach any time soon? Or will they continue to use their private jets? Are they going to relinquish their multiple homes and vehicles? And, if this group does find a way to “penalize” their targets, aren’t you and I going to bear the price for that somewhere down the line, either through the loss of jobs or increased costs?

Who died and left these eco-hypocrites in charge?
