Democrats and climate hawks share a dilemma, and that dilemma is
millennials.

.

Millennials  people born between 1980 and 2000, give or take, depending on
your definition  are, in many ways, an incredibly attractive political
target. There's a lot of them, they lean Democrat, they are more concerned
about climate change than older cohorts, and they absolutely love clean
energy.

.

The problem is, too few of them vote. "Between 1964 and 2012," writes
Derek Thompson at the Atlantic, "youth voter turnout in presidential
elections has fallen below 50 percent, and Baby Boomers now outvote their
children's generation by a stunning 30 percentage points." It's even worse
in midterm elections.

.

Now, eco-billionaire Tom Steyer is going to put some of his money toward
changing that. His Super PAC, NextGen Climate, is launching a $25 million
"national campaign to register and mobilize young voters in seven key
battleground states to help elect climate champions to the White House and
the Senate this fall."

.

NextGen has released a strategy memo that outlines the rationale for their
campaign. It contains all sorts of enlightening #MillennialFacts, which I
will share with you now.

.

Millennials are numerous

.

In 2008, there were twice as many boomers eligible to vote as millennials.
And there were three times more actual boomer votes cast.

.

That's changing. Millennial voter registration has almost tripled since
then.

.

In 2016, for the first time, millennials will be as large a share of the
eligible voting population as boomers, roughly 30 percent. That said,
boomers are still expected to outvote millennials this year.

.

But by 2020, millennials will outnumber boomers 34 to 28 percent, and cast
more actual ballots. (These numbers are from the States of Change project;
more here from Ron Brownstein.)

.

In this year's election, NextGen is zeroing in on millennials in
presidential swing states, where they're a particularly significant voting
block
