“he insurance industry makes its money telling it to you straight”

Apparently this guy has never dealt with insurance companies before.

It may come as a shock to some people, but insurance companies hype climate change as a pretext to jack up premiums and make more $$$.

The claims of an upward trend in severe weather events due to global warming are all demonstrably false.

This falls into the same category as trying to convince conservatives of AGW by saying the Defense Department is planning for it.

Except for certain localized floods. Individual gauges have shown a trend in record rains. Those have not generally shown up in broader river basins (no trend in river floods). High temperature records are polluted by station errors and heat islands, low temp records are to some extent too and comparisons of records (showing highs increasing a lot more than lows) are pretty much bogus.

Tropical storm accumulated energy worldwide is trending down. Droughts occur infrequently so it is hard to glean a trend, but there is none that I know of.
