I have an interest in the world of insurance, which is a far more comprehensive and intricate industry than suggested by domestic insurers’ multi-policy discounts and the like.
In fact, commerce and industry in general would not operate without the insurance mechanism to support them.
Risk management is a related discipline, consisting of insurance (within its “risk transfer” component) and many other elements.
I also have a keen interest in climate change, and have felt for some time that its near-term and longer-term impacts are not fully appreciated by various major participants in the insurance industry. For that reason, I have developed the presentation below, which I will soon expand into a more comprehensive discussion paper.
Slide 65 has satellite images from November, 2013 of an iceberg the size of Singapore separating from Antarctica’s Pine Island Glacier. If you would like to go straight to that slide, then please type the slide number in the bottom right-hand corner and click enter.
The presentation can be expanded to full screen by clicking the bottom right-hand corner. It can be downloaded from here by clicking “save” just above the slides.
If you have any thoughts on this issue, I’d welcome your comments via this article's comments section on my blogging site, terrastendo. The article was published there on 2nd December, 2013.
