HSBC suspends manager for mocking climate change activists and their catastrophic warnings

London - The British bank HSBC has released its manager Stuart Kirk for the time being because he is said to have mocked warnings about the consequences of climate change. His statements do not reflect the views of the company, CEO Noel Quinn told the LinkedIn careers network, according to the Financial Times.

At a conference on why investors shouldn't worry about climate change, Kirk stated that there is "always some crazy person" who predicts the "end of the world". "Unfounded, loud, partisan, self-serving, apocalyptic warnings" were never true.

"Who cares if Miami is twenty feet below sea level in a hundred years? Amsterdam has been six meters below sea level for ages and it's a really nice place," the head of responsible investing said, according to the report. The company will now investigate the matter.
