London Calling: Climate Warning at Lloyd’s of London

munichre2

Short excerpts above from a speech this week, significant not only for who gave it,
but for who it was given to. Mark Carney, Governor of the Bank of England, talks climate with Lloyds of London. Lloyds, of course, as a pre-eminent Re-insurance company – they sell insurance to insurance companies – knows a lot about impacts of climate change. No deniers in the re-insurance industry. By Re-insurance giant MunichRe’s graph of catastrophic weather events – Note greens, blues and yellows in bars above, represent climate related events. Reds are geological and seismic,  ie not climate related.
