GAO adds Climate Change as Fiscal High Risk for U.S.
February 14 the GAO (US Government Accounting Office) delivered their Report to Congress about High Risk exposures. This year they deleted a few previous concerns and added several new high risks. US financial exposure to climate change was at the top of the list of added high risks.
The GAO is the non-partisan watchdog for Congress. Regardless of which party is in power, they compile the facts and deliver them by law and without favor.
(Tempted as I am, I will leave it to you to make the connotation that they delivered this on Valentine's Day.)
