A Patron of Economic Update asks: "I am confused by the 7/12/22 article in the Washington Post: 'Republicans threaten Wall Street over climate positions' by Steven Mufson (https://www.washingtonpost.com/climate-environment). Are Republicans really turning on their Wall Street backers? Are the big banks really concerned enough about climate change to do something meaningful at the expense of profits? It doesn't seem likely."
