Outgoing New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, along with billionaire climate activist Tom Steyer and former Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson, says businesses and policymakers need more detailed information about the economic risks of global warming.
“Ignoring the potential costs could be catastrophic. That is a risk we cannot afford to take,” they say in a new Washington Post op-ed. It touts the trio’s new “Risky Business” initiative, which will fund an analysis that will “look across the U.S. economy and assess the potential impacts of climate change by region and by sector.”
“We believe the Risky Business initiative will bring a critical missing piece to national conversations about climate change and help business leaders, elected officials and others make smart, well-informed, financially responsible decisions,” the op-ed states.
With climate economists playing the native american role? I would think that this sort of information is available in a number of places.
