In Face of Planetary Emergency, US Climate-Related Financial Risk Report Denounced as ‘Pitiful’ Failure

The report, according to Hauser, “fails to mention fossil fuels as the key driver of climate risk. It offers no specific timelines for any of its recommendations. And it does not include specific policy recommendations beyond disclosing and assessing risk. A terse summary of the report would read ‘it’s good to notice that our planet is burning, but we won’t do anything to fix it.'””After nearly 20% of Biden’s term in office and with only 98 months until 2030, by which time U.S. emissions must be cut in half to avoid climate catastrophe,” he said, “a report suggesting we learn more about climate risks without mitigating them is a failure.”
