“Climate change poses a major risk to the stability of the U.S. financial system and to its ability to sustain the American economy,” the CFTC task force said in its report. The document is marked as a final "confidential" report, though some changes may be made in the version set to be released on Wednesday.

The prospect of climate seriously impacting things such as commodities and possibly our very existence in some parts of the world (if not the whole world) is something that has been dealt with by mankind for centuries. 

How could this possibly be news to anyone with an IQ above 47?

That still doesn't change the fact that the timber industry in California is all but destroyed.

The 9th District (huge surprise) has blocked logging multiple times on Federal land.   AG Moon Beam worked hard to block logging on Federal land . . . among many.

But DaBig Psycho hates facts.

But who could have possibly have seen this coming?

While the Whack-A-Doo environmentalist keep pointing to climate change, we know beyond a shadow of a doubt that region of our earth has experienced droughts that have lasted decades (even centuries)   

But, millions upon millions of people decided to move there anyway, and it's a case study in urban sprawl.   

California and Northern Arizona weren't meant to support the daily water habits of 46 million (or more) people.

And it is good to see that on this subject, as in other parts of climate policy, there is substantial overlap among centrists and progressives. If Biden finds himself in the Oval Office, he will have a broadly popular and extremely detailed road map.

Saw Chad Wolf trending on twitter and I was unhappy to discover he wasn't dead.

Also eff the air quality right now, I have no idea how those people out west are even able to breathe right now.

Thanks for skipping over all the legal action that state of California has taken to stop the forest industry on Federal lands, Lick.

A little over a year ago India announced they expect coal powered energy production to increase 23% over 3 years.

Prediction:  Within 3 to 5 years into this initiative India will determine that such a move is not obtainable, and that energy costs will outstretch the means of a substantial portion of the populace to pay for it.   

Just like Angie Merkel dialed up a 2nd natural gas pipeline from Vlad Putin.

Fund our emissions reductions, or we'll do nothing about them (Chinese Communist Party)

But hey, they're not that bad (K-Street Stooge ChiCom Joe Biden)

Excellent tactical propaganda move by Xi as China is a screaming freight train of being the worlds leader in carbon emissions.   

We're going to really really try and do better . . . please build your stuff in China.

The Trump administration has a long history of protecting coal companies, and unfortunately for Novacheck, a representative was sitting in the audience during the talk: Catherine “Katie” Jereza, then a deputy assistant secretary in the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Electricity. Jereza fired off an email to DOE headquarters—before Novacheck had even finished speaking, according to sources who viewed the email—raising an alarm about Seams’ anti-coal findings.

“These are the Republican constituencies. This is not Greenpeace, this has nothing to do with polar bears. Climate is driving changes in markets,” said Alex Flint, executive director with the Alliance for Market Solutions, a group working with companies and Republicans to promote a fee on carbon emissions.

It's behind a paywall.   But I'm sure you all will be just as stunned as I was to learn (and now know) that a UN commission on climate and development is rife with corruption and financial mismanagement.  Particularly a commission set up within the UN by the World Bank.   Here a few excerpts from the Financial Times:


Quote
"Issues identified by the audit could seriously compromise the achievement of the objectives of the audited entity,
"

Quote
"Matters of misconduct and misappropriation of funds continue to obstruct sustainable development across the world,"
Quote
"The words' climate' and 'corruption,' people see these as two different worlds, but there is a lot of overlap," said Brice Böhmer, the head of climate governance integrity at Transparency International, the global anti-corruption group.

Note, the following is from an unnamed source, so using resident BidenVoter logic.   The following is 1000% fact, and the absolute truth.

Quote
No one is accountable; no one is responsible. The UNDP lets itself off the hook," the person said, also asking not to be named. "These funds are intended for the poorest of the poor . . . at what point will donors [to the GEF] decide to suspend funding?"
