Financial Services Committee Hearing on Sustainability and Competitiveness

The Congressional Subcommittee on Investor Protection, Entrepreneurship, and Capital Markets held a hearing on”Building a Sustainable and Competitive Economy: An Examination of Proposals to Improve Environmental, Social, and Governance Disclosures.” Note at 55:45 Representative Vargas asks former SEC Commissioner Paul Atkins if he believes climate change is real and Atkins dissembles, despite the fact that it is the SEC’s responsibility to know what risks are real and material so they can determine disclosure requirements.

Many thanks to Jim McRitchie for pointing us to this exchange.
