A politician said to me, “If there was nothing to it, why are the insurance companies assuming it is really happening and are acting accordingly…?”
And why not? Let me guess their “reaction” … higher premiums. Am I right?
Plus, here is the thing. We surely will see climate change- it is foolish to think otherwise if we look at history like tree rings, ice cores etc. But the crap about MAN causing this and MAN stopping it is really pompous. Almost as pompous as acting as though if we all hold hands and sing Kumbay yah together, we will reduce our “footprint” and mother nature will go and hide.
The Earth does not need us- we need the Earth. We can all die and the Earth will continue to go on. this is the thing. We think the universe revolves around us.
The insurance companies are doing what WE should be doing…using our smarts to best survive any dramatic climate change. Not argue over global warming or taxing the crap out of people to “solve” it.
And for the Love of God- don’t listen to a politician!
