Busy work is fiscally not responsible.
‘Climate-related financial risk’ means material financial risk posed by the effects of climate change, which isn’t scientific or reliable guess work. It includes future projects of intense storms, rising sea levels, higher global temperatures, economic damages from carbon emissions, and other effects due to public policy on climate change, shifting consumer attitudes or changing economics of traditional carbon-intense industries.
The art of guessing is not worth Taxpayer funds.
