Climate Change Risks Mounting for Businesses
"Risks and opportunities to companies face in the years ahead. Here is maggie. Pelosi an attorney with vincent and elkins. Hi meg welcome to climate. Cast ballots to be here. So how do companies begin to assess their risk as climate change impacts. Continue to unfold. So i think many companies have already started down this road and fundamentally there are two big types of risks that companies are looking at right now. The first are risks or opportunities that individual companies may face associated with the energy transition. So that's the transition from an economy. Where many of our power sources are coming from. Fossil fuels to an economy is mostly powered by renewables or other carbon free kinds of sources to power the second risk. That has gotten less attention. But i think is in many ways going to be more significant for all companies on a going forward basis is the physical risks of climate. Change as you well know in your listeners will be well familiar. There are a number of physical impacts of climate that regardless of what actions we take to reduce emissions now. We are going to experience changes in storm. Severity rises in sea levels. Changes in temperatures in each of those types of events can have impacts on the ability of industry stained continuity of their operations or to respond in emergency or disaster situations litigation. Around this. what are you seeing emerge. I think the most prominent piece of litigation in this space are the legal challenges have been wrought by a variety of municipalities against oil and gas producers. Those cases are in very early stages. There are a number of other types of cases that we are starting to see against corporations that are asking questions about the readiness of companies physical facilities for climate change so basically using tools of conventional environmental law to say. Gosh are you really complying with your permanent things like preventing spills or preventing releases if you haven't thought about the potential for increased storm surge increased flash precipitation events those kinds of things. What about regulations they're changing. We know there's a change in politics in washington. Dc so what are regulators doing around climate policy. And what does it mean for companies right now. The most significant thing that's happening in climate change that will impact corporations is the increase in attention to climate at the securities and exchange commission in terms of other buckets of climate regulation. We expect to see the will. Impact businesses the fed has created a group called the supervision climate committee which is essentially looking at the potential to create climate stress test for systemically important banks and then we will certainly see some of the more conventional types of greenhouse gas regulation environmental laws to be signed the obama administration. What about opportunities. Are you seeing opportunities ahead in this space. I absolutely am seeing opportunities. And and i think that the right conversation around climate at pretty much every company is. What's the transformational opportunity. I'll give you a very concrete example in the oil and gas industry we are seeing an increasing number of the big oil and gas companies. Talking about how they can become carbon management companies right. They will say look should regretting oil and gas. How the ground. But you know what that means. We're great at characterizing the geology formations knowing how to see to inject things and knowing how to monitor wells and knowing how to plug in the end in them so we can take all those skills and we can turn around and start putting c o two into the ground and we can create a new line of business for

"I mean i went to state university of new york. It's tony brooke. I mean these are hyper elites. And they're going in for the so that is concerning. You're leaning in hard. And and and i understand that it does make me want to raise a couple of things We do have an electoral college. Yes we had presidents who lost popular votes. They did win the electoral college. Vote until this time when we had a challenging of the electoral college by republicans directly and i recognize acknowledge that but i find myself thinking about the emergence of some of the leaders that president trump has admired in other countries. So maybe a bolsonaro in brazil detaille in the philippines. It wasn't a us republican party in those countries and yet we've seen this emergence other places. So how how do we. How do we tell that story to ourselves. And what are those larger full phenomenon. I wonder if we are a global community at risk here. You're making a great point. It's really vital to see how badly brand of democracy that's been harmed by the developments. In the united states. I mean trump's allies and friends aired awan bolsonaro. Bolsonaro has said the other day that that it's up to the military to decide whether we're brazil is going to be a democracy or dictatorship. He's leaving it up to the military. So i mean he's being very open. The trump of the tropics. He's called so and he imitated trump's response on cova resulting in the second highest death toll in the world behind the united states so trump's anti-democratic open anti-democratic antics have correlated with a far right International movement i and this was enabled to some extent by a failure to crack down on this with say mody and present in in india The the prime minister of india. Who obama'd was not harsh enough with so also authoritarian. Nationalist religious nationalist so we have these these movements all across the world and when the united in the united states is always of course. Been hypocritical about its democracy. I mean we've only been a real democracy since the nineteen sixties or. What makes you say that well. Black americans were not allowed to vote until the nineteen sixties in the south. And so you're not a democracy if a huge part of your population is not allowed. Access to the ballot. We were 'herrenvolk folk democracy a democracy that constrains the boat to a certain populations. So you feel. We've overcome that today. Well i think that black americans have pushed us to be more and more democratic from the civil rights movement to what we saw in georgia. With stacey abrams and others enlists. Things are registering so many voters but this entire we have an enormous movement that became explicit to disenfranchise black voters..

"Now we've bracketed this conversation just now and in my introduction around the trump administration but i do want to ask you because what you've just said is quite damning of that administration were we headed in this direction prior to twenty sixteen where their larger forces at play. Yes i mean as someone who studies the the rise of authoritarian fascist movements the sort of devaluing of the elite classes the failures by the democrats and the republicans to to address. America's problems problems the yawning inequalities. It allowed it allowed. Someone like trump to common say. They've ignored you The system is rigged corrupt of the financial crisis. The iraq war This allows for positive social. Change these terrible failings of the entire leap political class but history tells us again and again it also allows for Really grim responses to our national problems and if we do that again If if we if too many americans become convinced that the government is in the hands of wealthy elites which of course it is to some extent but if but unless we address that then we open ourselves up to this again and of course unless we address our horrific racial problem with racial injustice where under democratic presidents republican presidents No matter what the administration a black americans are rightly protesting brutal treatment by a military militarized. Police that enables demagogues common. Say i am your law and order president who will take care of the problem from from nixon to trump. They have done that. So unless we deal with these terrible inequities racial and economic. We're going to go through this again. So let me make sure. Let me kind of feedback to you. What i think. I'm hearing from you. It's a combination of institution's failing people people feeling disenfranchised deep tensions along identity such as race deep economic inequality. Your saying that those create an opportunity for someone who is despotic and may lean toward fascism or authoritarianism to claim a place and become a leader. Am i understand you correctly absolutely and on on top of that. We have multiple generations. The republican party that have that have sort of leaned into anti-democracy They've lost seven out of eight of the last presidential elections. The popular vote. I and in each taught at an each each time. They've done that. They've been fine with it. And the response has been to lean into voter disenfranchisement by fraudulent claims of voter fraud. And such like. And if you do that if you're if you play the anti-democratic game you're also opening yourself up to someone who comes. Hey i'm just going to be anti-democratic why why do we have to even pretend that this is a democracy. And once we see figures like josh hawley and ted cruz do this. Which with who have no excuse. I mean these senators from missouri texas. Who joined in the questioning of i just for our listeners. Joined in the questioning of the legality of the results last week. Sorry go ahead. Yes and that's a very concerning development. Because i mean ted cruz went to princeton and harvard. josh hawley. Bankers saw new went to stanford and yale law school. These are not just delete. These are elites of the elites..

"Well. I think that it's a little strong to say that the breach of the capital overall was planned. I think there are certain elements. That showed up there geared up for violence and then there are others who showed up there because they just wanted to protest sort of within legal limits and then you had both mixed together once the capital was breached but the fbi are clearly worried about pre. Planning now for events around in the inauguration. Because i think that. I think the fbi thinks that what happened last week at the capitol is perceived as a success by fringe groups on the right and so maybe they're emboldened to try it again now. That said one of the problems with domestic terrorism. Which is a little different than we were when we were contending more with foreign terrorist concerns. Is that when it comes to domestic terrorism. There's a tremendous amount of chatter that does not result in any activity so separating the wheat from the chaff is very difficult. There is a flood of online. You know social media platform based chatter and communications and comments and threats the vast majority of which results in nothing and so separating one from the other is very difficult. I think right now at least asked to massachusetts the fbi has no specific intel About planned Mayhem kind Within the commonwealth. And i think we're cautiously anticipating that things will remain quiet here as to what happens. Dc i don't know dc is obviously very locked down right now And so i don't think much can happen there but as for the four corners of my jurisdiction so far that's causing tremendous alarm. Obviously we have to be ready just in case it happens. That is all good news. Let let's talk now about this. Eventual transition time remains uncertain. But but that it's coming.

We never had the level of. What we call syndrome surveillance where you pick up. cases of clusters of fever cases. We never had a metropolitan area. Epidemiologic maps is guidelines, so our response overall nationally has been inadequate. My big worry now is we're starting to see this very steep rise in cove in nineteen cases in Florida Arizona. And Texas so there's this massive resurgence because we opened up, the states are prematurely and here in Houston, the rises especially worrisome, and it's not just number of cases it's as you described in Phoenix big increases in hospitalizations in ICU admissions, and this is where it really gets to be worrisome, because once there's that surge on the see. That's where the mortality rates go up. Is Staff get overwhelmed? And then you could reproduce what we saw. New York City over the spring, and so I'm worried about Phoenix I'm worried about Houston Dallas Austin and some of the Florida cities, and this is going this potentially could be. A initiative that's as bad as anything. We saw earlier this spring in New York. A doctor quickly before we go. Are we going to be able to trace the effects of the trump of pandemic denial tour of from Oklahoma to Arizona? I mean why pick these two cities. Why pick the to to the worst cities in terms of the the rate of rise? I guess next they'll come to Dallas and Houston. It just doesn't make any sense this is this is putting. People in jeopardy.

"Is the president of home homes. The White House on Saturday night. Looking to shoveled defeated red tie undone dangling around his neck, a walk of shame back home, literally hat in hand. Does hours earlier he'd wrapped up his rally in Tulsa Oklahoma rally that was going to reboot his whole reelection effort. Campaign said they don't over one million ticket requests for the rally. There were meant to be so many people. They even built a whole extra stage outside the arena for trump pence to address your flow crowd. But there was no overflow. Crowd weren't even enough people to fill the actual renewed self according to Tulsa, Fire Department there were just over six thousand people in Arena. That can seat three times that many. Times reports the president was stunned, yelled at AIDS backstage while looking at the endless rows of empty seats, and he gave a rambling speech spending more than fifteen minutes, explaining why he had walk slowly down ramp West Point before successfully drinking a glass of water with just one hand leading to applause. Then, he came home. We got the now a conic image of a man looking dessel Tori defeated because like among many other things. This is a moment that exposed the sheer. Political weakness of this man at this point. To talk about on joined by Alexia common political reporter for Axios covers the twenty twenty presidential election and you. Michel Cinder White House correspondent for PBS PBS. Newshour Alexi let me start with you I mean just at the most basic level of like campaign advanced. This was as big a disaster as I have seen particularly at A. With, the stakes as high as they were here. Suggests that people were focused on other things to your point Chris that they couldn't even pick up on this that it was happening until it was far too late. And in one thing we know to be true about President. Trump is that he loves these rallies. It's where he gets his energy. It's where he feels most himself, and it's where his base group of voters love him the most they love from at a rally. They don't necessarily love trump behind the podium. Podium giving a coronavirus briefing, but his voters love him at his at a rally, and he loves doing those things and the fact that he couldn't get. That is something that's going to grind his gears throughout this week and something that could lead to campaign staff shakeups. They're going to have to think about the fact that this was their rally to kick off their great American comeback to her now. How are they actually going to kick off that tour in earnest? Strikes me if you look at the at the polling average right now that has. Five thirty. It has Biden at about nine point advantage. We have seen in the last few months. How quickly life can change? How quickly politics change so this is just a snapshot of moment in time, but I wonder how much the White House understands. The problem is reality. It's not like the message. It just the fact that things are there's a pandemic, and things are not great in the country, and ultimately like they have to solve that or do a good job, or they will not win, and that's the basic equation I wonder. Do you understand that? I think there are people around the president who have been urging him to really proceed cautiously when it comes to the corona virus when it comes to. Victory over into a Alexi point. You have this president who is really desperate in and really excited about being in front of a big crowd of people. He wants to do that, but then you have his health officials saying well actually we're probably going to have a second wave of the coronavirus. More people are gonNA. Die Hundreds of thousands of Americans have already died of the virus. Virus, but still president trump is leaning on his instincts. Do what he wants to do. So even though there might be people around the White House to take it more seriously than president trump ultimately, it's still the president's decision to go forth because he's positive himself as kind of I'm not going to wear a mask, I'm not GonNa really buy into the the pandemic too much. This is what I found so fascinating in in many ways about this moment politically and also about what happened in Tulsa and Alexi you guys at axios had an interesting. Right up today, just a focus group swing voters in Eerie Pennsylvania, which again. This is qualitative this quantitative, but we read so much about the ways in which this has been polarized in these swing voters saying that they were feeling annoyed, irritated and frustrated she the president out, and about not wearing a mask into coronavirus participants described Biden as role ball, wearing a mask calling him. Him informed educated and responsible and I think you know when you look at the polling. When you look at what happened in Tulsa, it is easy to lose sight of the fact that there's actually a fair degree of consensus and UNM unanimity in American life that the virus is serious, and we should try to get it and we should do what we can to fight it. In Chris. That is a fact that we all know to be true and also have other polling with Ipsos. An axios that showed that eight in ten Americans are worried about a second wave coming that obviously matters because businesses and schools are to polling and public opinion about whether and how they should reopen, and it obviously matters how we can go about living our lives. The president you know. We thought he was seeing those numbers when he they. His campaign said that they were making the moved to pass out masks to rally goers, you know. Know, but what I'm curious about too is how many people are actually interested in signing a waiver to attend a rally like this? We saw how load the attendance numbers were already suggests that even trump's most ardent supporters aren't really interested in going out to see the president right now because of this pandemic, but on top of that. How many people are actually interested in signing away the rights to the President? When they're still so much, we don't know about this virus and again. There's a really high concerned that it's coming back imminently..

The president making noise now that he's going to try to change that have to do it through an executive order because the democratic how never gonna pass do you see a problem constitutionally from your perch as a former US attorney with the president saying, no more anchor babies. I do. Unfortunately, unlike the setting up the system, and how someone comes in and gets, you know asylum where those are all the the executive branch really does set how that happens the fourteenth amendment is very clear, if you're here, and you're subject to jurisdiction and people are right now, you know, many of my conservative colleagues are saying, well, that means there's a gray area. There's an opening so the president can do this. And I disagree with it. And this is why we have long held that when they come here illegally or legally that we subject them to our jurisdiction, meaning I could prosecute them as a use attorney for crimes that they commit even though they weren't citizens, and they have someone attorney. They have a right to a court appointed attorney, they have all the constitutional rights that a citizen would have in any kind of criminal beep. So I.
