Green investor opposes coal

Wealthy environmentalist Tom Steyer will visit the California State Teachers’ Retirement System’s investment committee to try and persuade the massive pension fund to divest from coal – an idea that Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León has pushed as part of his climate-change agenda.

The committee meets at 8:30 a.m. at CalSTRS headquarters in West Sacramento.
