The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is expected to roll out as soon as October expansive new regulations requiring public companies to disclose how their operations contribute to climate change and what they are doing to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Members of the U.S. Senate Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee may want to ask SEC Chairman Gary Gensler about the impact of the new climate regulations on consumer energy prices when he testifies before the committee at Tuesday’s oversight hearing

The move to strengthen climate-related disclosures by requiring companies to collect and disclose data on all indirect upstream and downstream greenhouse gas emissions that occur outside their core operations, including their supply chains, has long been foreshadowed by the SEC. Still, it represents the latest salvo in the Biden administration’s escalating war on America’s domestic oil and natural gas sector. 

The administration is steamrolling ahead with punitive requirements while at the same time begging Saudi Arabia and the rest of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) cartel to increase global oil production to keep a lid on prices. If it seems counterintuitive, it is. It’s anti-American. 

Requiring companies to account for any greenhouse gases emitted along their supply chains and using their products is an incredibly burdensome standard that will disproportionally affect domestic energy producers, including the financial institutions that underwrite the sector.
