Global Climate
Fill in your Descriptor Here??
How does global climate change
occur in a noticeable manner?
Names Begat Expectation



Global Warming: Next summer will be hotter
than last summer. Not borne out for the
average person
Global Climate Change: How do you measure
“change” in a meaningful way?
Global Climate Change  Increasing Weather
Volatility  Has Real Impacts (economic and
public health)
Possible Climate shifts:
3053 Records Broken in 2011
Two Certain Data Points
Expect Increased
Atmospheric Humidity
And this is Alarming
Arctic Sea Ice Rapidly Dissipating
Redistributes Incoming solar radiation
through albedo difference
Confirms Humidity Expectation
Key Points
We are now measuring a relatively rapid
rate of energy redistribution on a global
scale
Expect disruption of seasonal jet stream
placements
Climate: Seasonally average weather
patterns.
Climate change: Unseasonable weather
and extreme weather
Recent Extreme Weather
(if normal, all numbers close to 60)
Less Heating Oil Used
(extremely warm NE winter)
The Insurance Company Knows
Where Not to Live – US Climate
Volatility Refugees …
Obstacles to Policy

How many events will it take?
Politically and personally, we are extremely
bad at risk assessment.
