As concern about climate risk disclosure grows, an analysis of ~800,000 U.S. municipal bonds representing over $2.5T in outstanding debt shows no evidence it is being systematically priced in.

Catastrophic wildfires are expected to be ~15% more likely across the U.S. by 2060, assuming a business-as-usual carbon emissions trajectory in the coming decades, which would increase annual average economic damage from wildfires by ~8%.
