TN Note: According to a Townhall article, “Hillary Clinton is working alongside billionaire Tom Steyer to sow a garden of climate change paranoia. Clinton is scaring young voters into supporting her campaign by leading them to believe that a Republican president will unleash a climate apocalypse.” Steyer is close to John Podesta and his Soros funded Center For American Progress. When ‘science’ is god, the end justifies the means. 

Billionaire environmental activist Tom Steyer’s super PAC launched a $25 million youth voter drive on Monday in seven political battleground states to help elect candidates that champion climate change policies in November’s general election.

Steyer’s NextGen Climate super PAC, a political group that raises funds to boost candidates with strong environmental platforms, said the campaign aims to boost turnout of millennials, who have become one of the largest potential voter groups.

In the lead-up to the November general election, NextGen will deploy hundreds of organizers across over 200 colleges to register young voters and facilitate on-campus voting.

“We are determined that they will be a difference maker,” Steyer told reporters on a conference call.

The group is targeting seven battleground states where Steyer said millennial voters could “make up the difference in a tight race.”

Those states are Pennsylvania, Iowa, Ohio, New Hampshire, Nevada, Illinois and Colorado.

Steyer has been the second largest individual political donor in 2016, having spent $13 million so far this year, according to OpenSecrets.org.

NextGen said the number of registered millennials has nearly tripled since 2008 from 17.2 million to 50.3 million, making the demographic a key political force in 2016.

Climate change and clean energy is an area where there is widespread millennial interest.

NextGen cited a June 2015 poll that found that 73 percent of young voters want the United States to get 50 percent of its energy from renewable sources by 2030.

The group has not yet announced which candidates it will endorse in the presidential or congressional races but said it has challenged all candidates to say how they would achieve a goal of hitting a 50 percent clean energy target by 2030.

I, too, would like for us in The United States to get half of our energy from renewable sources. My problem is that I don’t have the slightest clue how such a marvelous condition could be achieved without reducing our population to a small fraction of what it is today so we would then be a society who needs less energy and then to have those who remain “time travel” themselves back to stone age conditions.

Or maybe someone has a really good idea about how to amend and modify the fundamental laws of physics in the way they need to be modified in order to enable renewables to provide fifty percent of our energy needs. Any good ideas?
