Tom Steyer, founder of one of those evil hedge fund companies that liberals hate so much (unless they're backed by Democrats, of course) is planning to spend as much as $100 million in 2014 to attack global warming deniers, the New York Times reports.

Steyer is also rounding up other wealthy donors to build his organization, NextGen Climate Action, up to the scale of enterprises funded by Charles and David Koch.

Steyer has already spent $11 million to help elect Gov. Terry McAuliffe in Virginia and millions more in a Democratic primary in Massachusetts.

Despite the millions Steyer has already spent - and plans to spend - I doubt he will receive the same treatment as the Koch brothers for using his wealth to advance his political beliefs.
