Nobody knows the effects of extreme weather events better than the people that insure the insurance companies.

An overview​

Global losses from natural disasters in 2020 came to US$ 210bn, of which some US$ 82bn was insured. Both overall losses and insured losses were significantly higher than in the previous year (2019: US$ 166bn and US$ 57bn respectively).
The US share of losses was rather high: Natural disasters in the US accounted for US$ 95bn (2019: US$ 51bn) of overall losses and US$ 67bn of insured losses (2019: US$ 26bn).
This year’s natural disasters claimed some 8,200 lives.
Overall, the uninsured portion of natural disaster losses in 2020 was around 60%. Once again, it was notable that only a small portion of losses was insured in the growing economies in Asia. The year’s costliest natural disaster was the severe flooding in China during the summer monsoon rains. Overall losses from the floods amounted to approximately US$ 17bn, only around 2% of which was insured. Insurance solutions either from the private sector or in the form of public-private partnerships could help to improve resilience, in other words the ability to return to normal life as quickly as possible.

There are going to be deserted coastlines in part of the Southeast in the coming years. Insurance companies are going to refuse to insure coastal parts of Texas, Louisiana, and Florida, and people won't leave, they'll stay. Until a hurricane comes along and they lose everything. Property values of those nearby homes unaffected will plummet as nearby coastal neighborhoods are wrecked and abandoned.

This is the new normal. Droughts in the West will halt new development, and fire risks will also make insurance unaffordable in parts of the West. The next phase is climate refugees. Nowhere in the industrialized world are more people unaware of this than in the United States.

You mean an opinion of what insurance will companies will do without having to know

We are already having major fires, the floods continue around the world, and this hurricane season is shaping up like last years.

Does one version of CO2 cause fires and another causes floods?


During the past million years, co2 froze greenland while thawing North America....

Just do not notice any tectonic plate movement...

Don't accept solar as a cause. One froze, one thawed, at the same time. Only tectonic movement explains the data...


Co2 explanation - um, well, co2 concentrated over NA and fled Greenland....

What a classic one dimensional crap you posted.

You focus on a SINGLE year...... :cuckoo:

2020 Hurricane season was busy in the Atlantic and nowhere else, but your scum ridden post left that part out.

Major Tornado season continues to decline

There has been no global increase in the number of wildfires … here’s the NASA satellite data.

Deaths from climate-related phenomena are at an all-time low. If you think deaths from climate-related catastrophes are an emergency, please point in the graph below to the start of the “emergency”.

Stupidest concept ever. Seriously.

Fearmongering. You might as well be arguing God is going to send us to hell for not reducing CO2 emissions.
