Most Insurers Lack a Plan to Address Climate Change, Ceres Says
Bloomberg (03/07/13) Bunn, Elizabeth

"Climate change exists, it's happening, it's going to have an impact," Washington state Insurance Commissioner Mike Kreidler said in a phone interview. "It has the potential of being a real game changer" for investments and underwriting. Ceres said the survey was developed by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners.
