It makes perfect sense /irony off/ that insurance companies would port over James Hansen’s potent global warming and cash redistribution software package, to assist in quoting insurance to honest, if gullible, (but otherwise healthy) Americans.
According to The Wall Street Journal (here):
. . . Costs for homeowner insurance along the East and Gulf coasts have risen 20% to 100% since 2004, says the Insurance Information Institute, a trade group. In the three years through 2006, says the institute, property and casualty insurers registered record profits, topping out at $65.8 billion in 2006. (Despite severe U.S. weather that has caused about $8.9 billion in insured property losses to date this year, it’s too early to forecast 2008 profits.)
Helping to drive these developments is a little-known tool of the insurance world: Computerized catastrophe modeling. Crafted by several independent firms and used by most insurers, so-called cat models rely on complex data to estimate probable losses from hurricanes.
Computerized catastrophe modeling is the new actuarial power drink, thanks to the doomsaying of Al Gore and James Hansen. And this while Earth’s oceans cool.
