That’s what new Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen wants to set up. That’s not necessarily a bad idea.
A climate risk office inside Treasury actually could be useful—were its purpose properly targeted.
The risks that are worth assessing and which realizations worth planning for, though, are political and economic, not climatic.
The political risk is from government overreacting with laws and regulations to the overhyping of climate.
The economic risk is from businesses overreacting in anticipation of such political overreactions.
Somehow, though, I doubt that’s Yellen’s intention for her new office.
