Romney and his super PAC have taken millions from funders with strong green streaks — despite the fact that the ex-Massachusetts governor has run to the right in the primary, proclaiming doubts about global warming science and trashing President Barack Obama’s greenhouse gas policies.
Julian Robertson, founder of the Tiger Management hedge fund, helped put cap-and-trade legislation on the map with $60 million in contributions over the last decade to the Environmental Defense Fund.
Now, Robertson has given $1.25 million to Romney’s Restore our Future super PAC, plus the maximum $2,500 to the Romney campaign.

Other green-minded financial backers may not be bucking up as much as Robertson. But they still share the view that climate change science and a solid environmental agenda wouldn’t be a lost cause if Romney won the White House.
“My feeling is that on these issues that people learn,” said former New Jersey Republican Gov. Thomas Kean, who maxed out last fall to Romney with a $2,500 check. “And my hope is, as time goes on, he will understand that not everybody agrees on how you deal with these issues, but I hope he will agree with 99 percent of the scientists who believe this is an issue that we have to deal with.”
