What is the difference between a centrally planned Communist economy, and an economy where Central bankers punish businesses which defy their investment directives?
Global Warming Is a Central Bank Issue
Ferdinando Giugliano, 13 April 2018, 3:30 PM
Last week, central bank governors from the U.K., France and the Netherlands met in Amsterdam to discuss how to adapt regulation to the risks posed by climate change. Together with five other institutions (from China, Germany, Mexico, Singapore and Sweden), these central banks have formed the “Network for Greening the Financial System” (NGFS). This group has two objectives: sharing and identifying best practices in the supervision of climate-related risks, and enhancing the role of the financial sector in mobilizing “green” financing.

Which Trends? Last week’s TWTW may have given a wrong impression to some readers. In discussing the estimate by Christy, et al., of the rate of warming of the bulk atmosphere over the past 38 years of 0.10 ± 0.03°C per decade, the rate of warming was used to project the warming from a doubling of CO2. Not emphasized sufficiently strongly is that the projection embodies the highly speculative assumption that the rate will continue for about two centuries. Most assuredly, it will not.

In a most ironic twist, President Trump’s Budget Director and the Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), Mick Mulvaney is now heading a bureau that he used to decry with regularity.
In fact, Mulvaney is still pointing out the many different problems with the bureau even as he attempts to lead it in a productive direction.

An initiative to split the state of California into three different states has gathered enough support via signatures to qualify as a ballot measure in November.
This is one important milestone for those who want to break away from the harsh Communist policies of much of the Golden State.
Venture capitalist Tim Draper said backers of what he has dubbed “CAL 3” would submit petitions with more than 600,000 signatures to election officials next week.
The initiative needs signatures from 365,880 registered voters – five percent of the total votes cast for governor in the 2014 election – to qualify for the ballot.
