This is incredible. Wuhan has a bigger population than NYC.

Here's the bit where @Citi CEO Mike Corbat forgets that financing companies that exacerbate climate change doesn't exactly "support communities", and that banks already "dictate outcomes" with every credit decision they make. From @FT @gilliantett #Davos20

Come, sweet nuclear winter, and cleanse us of this madness.

Come, sweet nuclear winter, and cleanse us of this madness.

This week my @breakingviews colleagues reminded me why I love working with them so much. So many brilliant columns, but I'm particularly digging this one, where @TheRealLSL challenges #climate-woke investors to target the real Moby Dick.

People think #climate is about carbon. But #water is the bigger issue - floods, storms, droughts. That’s what has the big financial impact. And #Canada is not ready. @TobyMessier of @Aquantix chats with @AntonyMCurrie at #bvpredicts

Nobody will vote for climate change policy that leaves them poorer. Important lesson for debate over future of #canada’s oil-rich western provinces. Dan Barclay of BMO @BMOBarclay chats with @AntonyMCurrie at #bvpredicts @breakingviews

Why don’t companies act more decisively on #climate? One reason is still fiduciary duty - how to square it with their obligation to shareholders. Barb Zvan of @OtppInfo chats with @AntonyMCurrie at #bvpredicts #canada @Breakingviews

New #WellsFargo boss Charlie Scharf said today that he doesn't yet have all the answers on how to fix the bank - and then proved it by not really giving any answers. Here's my column on Wall Street's biggest doer-upper.
