Insurance companies know damn well that climate change is real.
Frankly, I'm surprised anyone insures anything but cars in CA, what with fires, floods, earthquakes, mudslides, the occasional tornado and general high winds damage, and threat of tsunamis.
I suspect in the future, home insurance will go the way of health insurance, where you can get it, but for much larger copays than the current deductable-amount-of-choice system we now have. At least for those if wildfire areas of the state...which also happen to be the reddest parts of CA. So you can already hear the bitching blaming the Democrats for discriminating against them.
Ta, Dok. Even before I knew about the science, I understood that using fossil fuel for transportation, fertilizing and pesticiding crops, and making all this fucking plastic and having no safe plan for its disposal would lead to disaster. It's one of the reasons I never wanted to have children; I did not believe I could leave them a fit planet worth living upon.
The military has been quite vocal about this. I've read about it in numerous publications of various types.
Climate change, schlimate change. The real culprit is gender reveal parties.
They do but it freezes in the winter when the power grid fails.
That thing at the end? You only do that for the upfists, don't you?
"Bluer" parts of CA are just as vulnerable (Malibu, Santa Barbara, Marin Co., etc.), so this is going to be pretty equally-spread pain.
Meanwhile, to offset their huge losses from weather-related disasters intensified by climate change, insurance companies are investing heavily in extraction industries, which have huge profits and pay large dividends. Kind of like a health insurance company investing in tobacco companies to offset losses from treating lung cancer victims.
Damn, that sucks. I'm paying less than 1k but I'm in the burbs.
Or out of masochism, for the "Get out" gifs
Lake got bigger. Much bigger.
Besides, LA is full of (((globalists))), Commies and Messicans. They won't take any notice until Real Americans get wiped out.
I found this entire exchange amusing.
The Russian oligarchs are running short of cash.
Fascinating. Thanks, Dok. I've been concerned for awhile that more and more people will want to move to Colorado to get away from the coasts. We need a wall that will steer them toward Idaho, Montana, Utah, northern Texas, the Midwest. Anywhere but here. /s
Seriously, we have to figure out water. If there is any kind of intra-state migration, people will have to go where there's enough water. But they won't. Capitalism will encourage them to go to pretty places that have little to no water. Colorado's one of them.
Like a good neighbor, State Farm is scared.
