California Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones announced yesterday that the insurance departments in California, Washington state, and New York will “require insurers to respond to the Climate Risk Survey adopted in 2009 by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners.” In response, NAMIC noted that for more than three years, a handful of insurance regulators and global warming activists have been trying to use this survey as a tool to prod the insurance industry into taking unspecified action to address the issue of climate change.
