    I saw no mention of non-compliance by China with these agreements. Once the US has withdrawn, it will have a great deal of leverage in discussions of REASONABLE restrictions that also involve China. Until then, it is hypocritical of anyone in the EU or the UN to criticize the US and give China a free pass to continue polluting at the expense of ALL other inhabitants of Earth.

      Let’s not forget India as well who is a big polluter and not mentioned. Speaking of China, Obama really made a great deal with them. He said the US would reduce carbon by 25% by 2020. China said they would begin to start reduction by 2030. What a deal!

    Crank up the economic engine. World economy, here we come. Back on track again. No more measly 1-2.5% growth. More like 3-5%, maybe 6% and all the jobs that come with it.

        You clearly have not lived in an area where this was an issue. You ever hear of a 3rd stage smog alert? Pretty common thing when I was growing up in SoCal and we could not go outside to play because our lungs would burn the next day due to the particulate matter.
        Or how about the MN Iron Range in its hey day when hanging wash was brown with soot and the lakes and rivers filled with soot and runoff and acid rain. This is not make believe kiddies.

          Stop with the hyperbole and personal insults (kiddies).

          You’re not arguing with someone who knows nothing about current environmental regulations. Further, all experienced insurance executives have spent a lot of time reviewing environmental liability claim stats.

    Why is this in Insurance Journal? it’s better suited for a USA Today article.

      Because it will have huge consequences down the road.Rising tides will lead to more flooding and larger, more frequent storms. It will also lead to increased particulate matter in the air which has huve health consequences and under certain conditions might even increase crime.All of these increase risk to insurance companies.

    Lemming Liberals grow a pair and stop allowing the lying media lead you by the nose. The next logical move is to kick the UN out of the US and let those who welch on their funding “commitments” find another patsy. In the meantime we shoudl reduce foreign aid [or cut it out] to fund our infrastructure.

      Good idea mighty. Many want the UN to get out since they vote against the US on most issues anyway. NATO does not contribute much to the fight against ISIS anyway. It is high time they got with the program. They are being over run by Terrorists and they just wring their hands.

        Very mature, well thought-out ideas showing not only great intelligence but a great, non-Trump U education that really allows you to see the bad effects of UN like massive outbreaks of diseases that spread, genocide, trade wars, etc.

    We are in an industry that believes in climate change (try to insure coastal property). I thought the Know-Nothing Party disappeared in the 19th century.

      Aside from maybe 1, every person I have noticed who has said what they do here and is a climate change/accepted science denier is an agent or broker. They do not have to analyze risk, they sell.

    This decision will have tremendous adverse consequences on our industry. More frequent and more severe “black swan” weather events, tidal surge, coastal erosion, greater frequency & severity in convective and cyclonic storms. The future is low/no emission renewables, but we are instead doubling down on the past.

    Insurance is the numbers game behind everything so if insurers worldwide are completely convinced that climate change is the risk it truly is, everyone everywhere needs to stop insuring crazy projects and crazy nations who take actions that harm everyone else. You bet to win, not lose.

      Which nations and which projects harm everyone else?

      I’ll say China harms every other nation, and they do so with the unabated release of pollutants into the atmosphere and their production of goods containing carcinogens for sale to other nations. Example: California labels products from China with warnings that indicate the presence of carcinogens.

      Obama signed [an] agreement(s) to allow China to continue to do so (‘pollute’) for about 30 years – far beyond his term in office, when the harm will eventually be realized and be seen…. and he cannot be held liable / accountable. What say Obama supporters now that they know his legacy includes allowing China to operate factories to the detriment of all other nations?
