Expect a load of Republican disinformation about the proposed SEC climate disclosure rule today as Chair Gary Gensler testifies before the House Financial Services Committee. Elizabeth Warren and 24 other Democrats applied pressure on the SEC prior to the hearing to push out a strong reporting rule, equipped with Scope 3 emissions requirements. Gensler has already indicated that California’s promised disclosure legislation will ‘change some of the economic baselines’ because many of the publicly-traded companies registered with the SEC will be subject to the state’s requirementslowering compliance costs. 





  • Elizabeth Warren shared an article: Climate change poses serious threats to our planet and financial system that @USTreasury can and must address. I’m urging Treasury to use all tools at their disposal to tackle the economic and environmental crises caused by climate change.
  • Chip Roy quoted a tweet: Nope. “Big Oil” is full of foreign owned, ESG-pushing activist corporations, who love moderate Democrats and lobby for Carbon Taxes, throttle competition, and increase energy costs – no thanks. #EnergyFreedom
