Left-wing billionaire Tom Steyer reportedly is having trouble persuading fellow lefties to join his $100 million campaign to elect Democrats in November. Steyer is soldiering on, nevertheless, in large part through his organization NextGen Climate. In New Hampshire, NextGen is running anti-Scott Brown ads. Politico reports:
NextGen Climate, Tom Steyer’s environmental group, is going up with its first New Hampshire ad today, tying Scott Brown to the Koch Brothers and attacking him as a carpetbagger.
An official said the group will spend in the high-six figures to air the 30-second spot, produced by GMMB.
More conventional than some of their recent ads, it starts with an image of a man collecting syrup from a maple tree and then flips to a derrick sucking oil from the ground.
You get the drift. But it looks as though Steyer may need to pony up more millions, as the latest poll data are looking good for Brown. Also from Politico:
The New Hampshire Senate race is tightening, according to a just-posted WMUR poll that puts Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen up only 2 points, 46-44, over Republican Scott Brown.
That’s within the margin of error. The same poll last month had Shaheen ahead by 12 points.
NextGen Climate is a global warming scare group. But what sort of cutting-edge science are they peddling? In Florida, Next Gen used Steyer’s millions to stage a demonstration of sorts outside the office of Governor Rick Scott. The buffoon in the photo below purported to “educate” Governor Scott about global warming. Click to enlarge:
What a pitiful display! “Climate change is Real…” Yes, and it has been real for millions of years. “The planet is older than 6,000 years old.” Huh? “Seawater is salty and rising.” Yes, at the same rate it has been for thousands of years. “The moon is not made of cheese.” I believe this is an Obama line. Apparently he considers it a crushing argument. “98% of scientists agree.” Not on anthropogenic global warming, they don’t. The battle continues to rage, and the hysterics are losing.
The white lab coat with too-long sleeves is an entertaining touch, too. If this is what Steyer is buying for his $100 million, Republicans can rest easy.
