Well, if renewable energy tax credits are reduced and CAFE standards are halfed, we can give thanks for the real conservatism we are getting from Republicans. I also want to point this paragraph out from the Guardian article quoted in this diary:
"Since 2014, the bank has made an effort to become more climate-conscious. Indeed, the vast majority of the bank’s fossil fuel financing took place before December 2013, when it adopted the president’s climate action plan and announced its intention to stop financing coal in all but the poorest countries."
It's clear in reading the article, that the rise in insuring products/projects was due to the Great Recession, a backdoor and indirect form of fiscal stimulus. There's not a lot of detail on the projects though. What if, for example, some of the projects were about installing new, cleaner, more efficient equipment in existing or new plants that were already in the till for construction? Or adding scrubbers in smoke stacks? Natural gas investment wasn't a secret so I am not going to knock the president for that. I'd rather invest in it than coal any day.
