Steyer claims to be a man of principle who has no financial interest in the causes he supports, but acts only for the public good. That is a ridiculous claim: Steyer is the ultimate rent-seeker who depends on government connections to produce subsidies and mandates that make his “green” energy investments profitable. He also is, or was until recently, a major investor in Kinder Morgan, which is building a competitor to the Keystone pipeline.
Today, he is a bitter opponent of fossil fuels, especially coal. That

he has been one of the world’s largest financers of coal projects. Tom
Steyer was for coal before he was against it.
