Amusing presentation by Stuart Kirk from HSBC Asset Mgt at the FT's Moral Money event, calling bullshit on the whole thing. "Investors should not worry about climate risk." Should ignore "unsubstantiated, shrill hyperbole."

In all the talk about global oil demand and whether/when it will reach pre-pandemic levels of 100mb/d, the real and significant impact of EVs is easily forgotten As of 2021, EVs were displacing 1.5mb/d – and rising fast

Please stop asking South Asians if we’ve read The Ministry for the Future. We live here? Maybe ask actual ministries what they’re doing, given that they might respond to you?
