Green billionaire prepares to attack 'anti-science' Republicans

Washington (CNN) - An environmental advocacy group backed by hedge fund tycoon Tom Steyer is set to unleash a seven-state, $100 million offensive against Republican "science deniers" this year, a no-holds-barred campaign-style push from the green billionaire that could help decide which party controls the Senate and key statehouses come November.

The Steyer-backed outside group, NextGen Climate, has billed itself as a progressive, pro-environment counterbalance to the wealthy oil and gas industry - as well as the primary foil to the pro-business Koch brothers and their well-funded conservative donor network.
