Climate Change And Your Insurance Agency -webquest

Insurance A new article in the acclaimed Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), headlined "The Multimillennial Sea-Level .mitment of Global Warming," reports that because of carbon emissions that are virtually certain, on the basis of the lack of policy-response to global warming thus far, sea levels are now set to rise anywhere from around 8 inches to 7 feet within 100 years, and around 5 yards to 10 yards within 2,000 years. In addition, according to an article from Nature Climate Change titled "Uncertainty in Temperature Projections Reduced" there is an "increased probability of exceeding a 2 C global-mean temperature increase by 2100 while reducing the probability of surpassing a 6 C threshold." Thus, by the end of the century, there will be at least a 2-degree Centigrade, or around a 4-degree Fahrenheit, temperature-rise. Lastly, for every degree hotter the oceanic waters get the more frequent and volatile storms will get. This was proven from a study that tracked a tropical storm. Through a .parative analysis they found that the storms of today go deeper in-land, and are more severe. What does the climate have to with your insurance agency? Well, you might not have an insurance agency tomorrow. Just kidding, putting the scare tactics aside, the climate change matters to you and your insurance because of the higher chance of violent storms. Now, if you are a resident of a coastline state, for example Texas, then you should be even more worried. The higher frequency of storms, and the higher severity of these storms mean a more prevalent danger to you, your loved ones, and your possessions. I do not mean to scare you. The world is not going to end, but the climate change poses a very real problem. So what can you do? This is where you insurance agency .es in. Call them. Check how much you are paying, and what you are paying for. Chances are that you are either over paying or not getting the services you need, or even worse, both. Shop around, there are a lot of other insurance .panies, and you should start by looking for insurance agencies that cater specifically to Texas. At the least they should be headquartered in Texas. Next, figured out what you need protected. Remember, the worsening climate means more severe storms. If you live in Texas, it is likely that you own a boat. Do you have boat or marine insurance? What about flood insurance? Do not windstorm insurance, and I bet you havent even heard of the personal umbrella. The umbrella insurance is basically insurance to your insurance. Umbrella insurance keeps you covered above and beyond what your standard liability policies cover. To help protect you and your assets, the extra liability insurance can be crucial to save your assets especially considering the worsening climate. You will need it. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
