Green Billionaire Tom Steyer Leaves Campaign Stop in Gas-Guzzling Suburban (Video)
Tom Steyer and Martin O’Malley leave the Superdome in a gas-guzzler
Billionaire Dem donor Tom Steyer wants you to pay more for your heating and electricity.
Meanwhile, he’s traveling to various campaign stops in a gas guzzling Chevy Suburban.
Forgive them, Al Gore, for they have sinned.
Just minutes after extolling the virtues of green living to thousands gathered in the Superdome in New Orleans, climate change pals Tom Steyer, a hedge fund billionaire, and Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley left the confab in the least environmentally friendly vehicle possible — a Chevrolet Suburban.
Steyer, the man pouring money into the 2014 election, and O’Malley, a possible presidential pick in 2016, spent Wednesday night in the Big Easy discussing politics and climate change at the 2014 Greenbuild conference, with both men stressing the need to continually educate the public about the need for aggressive action on climate change.
O’Malley, when asked by the event’s moderator how he would act on the issue if elected president, suggested he’d wage a public relations offensive to drill into the minds of Americans the importance of green living.
Yet, as the two men left the Superdome, they did so in a black Suburban, registered in Louisiana but sporting a sign on the dash identifying it as under control of the Maryland State Police.
