President Joe Biden is preparing to issue an executive order that would require companies to disclose the risks they face from climate change, special climate envoy John Kerry said.
Article by Art Moore from WND.
While Kerry did not elaborate, the order would fulfill a Biden campaign promise to require all public companies to report their emissions and climate-related risks, the Washington Examiner reported.
Biden already has ordered the Treasury Department, the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and the Federal Reserve to address the risks climate change poses to the financial system.

Republican lawmakers charge the administration’s efforts aim to curb investment in fossil fuels and shift investment to green ventures.
In fact, Kerry affirmed the objective of the Biden’s climate disclosure requirements is to impact the allocation of capital.
“Suddenly, people are going to be making evaluations considering long-term risks to their investment based on the climate crisis,” he said Wednesday at a virtual event hosted by the International Monetary Fund.
“And that will encourage new investment, as well as laws in countries,” he said.
Among the laws, he said, are tax incentives to support clean energy technologies.
In 2010, the Obama-Biden administration issued SEC guidance on climate disclosures but the reporting was not required.
The Examiner noted that some investors, who seek to align their portfolios with the Paris climate accord, have called on governments to require climate disclosure.
‘Nine years left’
In an interview with CBS “This Morning” in February, Kerry said the world has only more nine more years to “avert the worst consequences” of the climate crisis.
“[T]he scientists told us three years ago we had 12 years to avert the worst consequences of climate crisis. We are now three years gone, so we have nine years left,” he said.
“There’s no room for B.S. anymore,” Kerry said. “There’s no faking it on this one.”
Kerry’s warnings of a 2030 deadline for the planet is based on interpretations of a special report in 2018 by the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The Guardian newspaper headlined its article on the report “We have 12 years to limit climate change catastrophe, warns U.N.” But even the report’s supporters acknowledge it doesn’t say that. It concludes that if governments want to limit global warming to 1 degree Fahrenheit above today’s levels, they must reduce greenhouse gas emissions by about half by 2030 and to net zero by around midcentury.
In 1992, at the Rio Climate Summit, activists said the world had only 10 years to get global warming under control.
Biden announced in February that the U.S. has officially rejoined the Paris accord, without Senate ratification, one month after signing a directive reversing the Trump administration’s exit.
The president said the United States can “no longer delay or do the bare minimum to address climate change.”
The tipping-point warning isn’t new, as British scientist Philip Stott shows in a summary cited by Marc Morano in his book “The Politically Incorrect Guide to Climate Change.”
“In essence, the Earth has been given a 10-year survival warning regularly for the last fifty or so years. We have been serially doomed,” Stott said. “Our post-modern period of climate change angst can probably be traced back to the late-1960s, if not earlier. By 1973, and the ‘global cooling’ scare, it was in full swing, with predictions of the imminent collapse of the world within ten to twenty years, exacerbated by the impacts of a nuclear winter.”
In 2009, as a U.S. senator, Kerry claimed that the Artic would be ice-free in the summer by 2014.
“In five years, scientists predict we will have the first ice-free Arctic summer, that exposes more ocean to sunlight,” he said. “Ocean is dark, it consumes more of the heat from the sunlight, which then accelerates the rate of the melting and warming rather than the ice sheet and the snow that used to reflect it back up into the atmosphere.”
Some of Kerry’s critics have noted his regular travel by private jet. In his last year as secretary of state, he boasted of traveling more than 1 million miles over three years.
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
