    Another Politically Correct coward in the insurance world.

    Do you think Europeans and Americans will buy more Allianz Insurance products because of this pointless Virtue Signaling?

    Do you think China will slow down on building more coal-powered energy plants? India? Japan announced it would build more coal-powered plants. Should we stop eating sushi to show our friends how righteous we are now?

    When the Allianz executives have drinks in private, do you think they laugh at how easy it is to sucker liberals with this kind of tactic? Or do you think they foolishly believe they are saving the planet?

      Hmm, wonder if they will write Coal Operations in Germany, Poland or any other European countries?

        Love the time frame: “by 2040”. Hilarious. Not only will all the current Allianz executives no longer work at the company – and so will not be around to implement their planet-saving measures – most likely they will all be dead.

        Oh Brave Climate Warriors! You Go, Allianz. Green Religion salutes you in ignorance.

    Cowardly? Perhaps they realize that as coal becomes less profitable each year, losing market to renewables, coal companies will increasingly take risks to make money. Who wants that business?
    Would you want to insure a company run by the likes of Blankenship?
