Californian Billionaire Tom Steyer has just created a fund for victims of climate related extreme weather. The new initiative is intended to be 50% funded by Tom Steyer, and 50% funded by fellow travelers.
Steyer has apparently raised the money by selling his stake in Kinder Morgan, a large Texan Oil Company. http://www.kindermorgan.com
Steyer has also been devoting significant funds to helping Democrats campaign against Republican candidates in the upcoming senate elections.
Appart from wondering whether my “climate related” tick scare might qualify for a grant http://wattsupwiththat.com/2013/01/17/one-benefit-of-the-australian-heat-wave/ , Steyer’s new fund raises an interesting question in my mind, about American Politics;
Is it OK for large amounts of oil money to be expended influencing American politics, as long as the oil money is spent on helping Democrat candidates?
I wonder if I could get some money for being a victim of daily climate abuse by Miriam O’Brien, aka “Sou/Hotwhopper”. Steyer surely has some fund for victims of crazy Internet climate stalkers ;-) – Anthony
