The year 2016 was messy and expensive and full of climate change enhanced weather disasters. There were, according to Jeff Masters and Bob Henson, over 30 billion dollar disasters last year. The frequency of flood disasters in Europe have doubled over 35 years. The number of devastating floods that trigger insurance payouts has more than doubled in Europe since 1980, according to new research by Munich Re, the world’s largest reinsurance company. The firm’s latest data shows there were 30 flood events requiring insurance payouts in Europe last year – up from just 12 in 1980 – and the trend is set to accelerate as warming temperatures drive up atmospheric moisture levels. Globally, 2016 saw 384 flood disasters, compared with 58 in 1980, although the greater proportional increase probably reflects poorer flood protections and lower building standards in the developing world As I’m sure you’ve heard, he year 2016 was the hottest year on record, and 2017 is also going to be hot. (I personally doubt 2017 will be hotter, but then again, I was thinking that 2016 might not break the 2015 record.) Mark Bgoslough as an interesting piece here on how global temperature records are made, analyses, and reported. I recommend reading that. Here, I want to use a graphic he made for that item to point something outI’ve added the green lines. I’ll just leave it here without comment. People in the northeastern US should be about 50% more concerned about global warming than everyone else, because new research suggests that this region will warm about 50% faster than the globe in coming years. John Abraham summarizes and interprets the results here. A recent poll tells us that 90% of rural Australians are concerned about the impacts of climate change. Most were concerned about drought and flooding. Fewer than half this coal fire power stations should be phased out. I think that if you did a similar poll in the US, you would find that most rural Americans don’t are about climate change, and even fewer think coal should be phased out. Since all rural people, Australians or Americans and everyone else, have already been affected to at least some degree by climate change, and since the science strongly suggests that things will get much worse for them in the future, all of these folks should be concerned and all of them should be for doing something about it. The good news is that the cognitive dissonance we see in the Australia between climate change and concern may be a harbinger for future changes in American attitudes. Australia has probably been affected by severe weather caused or enhanced by climate change to a much larger degree than has Rural America. In short, I expect disdain for coal to catch up to concern about climate change in Oz, while in America, eventually, people will get more and more on board with both. Americans are more concerned about not offending farmers than they are about saving them. In American farmlands, we expect climate change to reduce staple crop production substantially by the end of the century. The farmers need to get on board more quickly if they want their grandchildren to be able to be farmers too. A question on everyone’s mind: “Is the California Drought over and what does this mean?” It looks over. Reservoirs are filling, snow is piling up in the mountains, everything is wet. However, there are several things still to consider. For one, the recharging of water supplies is not complete, and if near-zero-rain conditions return right away, the drought will slowly return. This is of course always a concern, but right now we have a slightly different question to ask for California. Is it the case that the conditions that led to the California drought are the “new normal” (a phrase I’m not really happy with) I the sense that from now on, there will be less snow pack, less rainfall, etc. In other words, is it the case that the future of California is generally much dryer all the time with the occasional drenching rainy season, because of climate change? We don’t know yet, but there is one fairly obvious area of concern: Snow pack. Snow pack plays a role in watering California. Snow pack forms during the rainy winter, and slowly melts thereafter. If that precipitation wasn’t temporarily stored up as snow, the winter rains would be more flooding, and there would be less water retained in the system for the rest of the year. Increasing warmth, due to global warming, has caused more of the precipitation that falls in the mountains to be rain rather than snow, and it has caused the snow to melt more quickly. Warmer temperatures also mean more evaporation, so getting everything all wet and squishy for a few months during the Winter may mean less a few months later when a warm and dry atmosphere starts to drunk the moisture out of the ground and off the reservoir’s surfaces at an accelerated rate. This piece by Andrea Thompson at Climate Central does a great job of summarizing the current situation in California. I have been noting for years (well, for a couple of years) that the best available paleo data suggest that the current levels of CO2 and/or temperature, protracted over a reasonable amount of time, should be associated with sea levels of about 8 meters. In other words, if you are worried about sea level rise, and you should be, the amount of sea level rise that we are currently locked into is enough to inundate much of Southeast Asia’s rice growing land, large parts of various US states such as Louisiana and Florida, and to cause retreat from many of the world’s most densely settled cities. Over recent months the interface between the scientific research and journalism has started to squeeze out the occasional example of this startling fact, one we’ve known for years but have been afraid to say about else we be considered non reputable. From the Independent: How long will this take? Nobody knows. This depends on how fast the major glaciers melt. Carlos Gimenez, mayor of Miami, is already rolling up his pants: The British Antarctic Survey is abandoning its Halley Base, in Antarctic, because the ice shelf on which it is located had developed a huge crack, so it is no longer safe to be there. They’l be out by the end of March. The crack is known as the “Halloween Crack.” Here’s a short video: In the Arctic, sea ice growth so far this year is below any previously observed year. From the National Snoe and Ice Data Center: They now “farm” salt. That is not euphemism for farming in salty conditions. They take salt out of the water. That is not a business that will have a lot of future when everybody else along the coasts of low lying countries are doing it as well. At the end of 2015, it looked like the negative effects of climate change were accelerating. That turned out to be true, and acceleration of the effects continues. This is probably not a good time to official deny the reality and importance of climate change, but that seems to be what we are doing in the United States.

Le serveur ALLFINANZ Interview de Munich Re Automation Solutions Ltd. permet aux clients de déposer leurs demandes d'assurance de manière totalement électronique et aux assureurs de réduire leurs coûts et asseoir les recettes en simplifiant leurs procédures internes. Il y a trois ans, constatant que le coût, les retours et taux d'erreurs élevés associés aux souscriptions et demandes d'assurance présentées sur papier entravaient l'acquisition de nouveaux clients et freinaient les processus internes, Gabrijel Škof, président du conseil d'administration d'Adriatic Slovenica, a pris de premières mesures pour automatiser un portail de vente dans l'intérêt des assurés, de l'équipe commerciale et des bénéfices de la société. Le logiciel de souscription automatisée de contrats d'assurance-vie ALLFINANZ a été choisi en raison de sa large adoption à l'échelle mondiale et de sa souplesse d'utilisation. « Nous sommes la première société d'assurance-vie de la région adriatique à automatiser chacune des étapes allant du dépôt de demandes d'assurance à la souscription de contrats », indique M. Škof. « Nous allons accroître notre part de marché en offrant un service plus rapide, plus clair et de plus grande qualité à nos clients. Les contrats pourront prochainement être finalisés en quelques minutes seulement alors qu'il fallait jusqu'à présent trois semaines pour les souscrire, étudier et analyser les demandes. » L'an dernier, Adriatic Slovenica d.d. (AS) a porté sa part de marché à 15 %, engrangé pour près de 300 millions d'euros de primes et enregistré un bénéfice de plus de 14 millions d'euros. La société propose des contrats d'assurance-vie, santé, habitation, biens, automobile, accident, voyage/vacances ainsi que des plans d'épargne et de retraite. L'automatisation concernera dans un premier temps les ventes de contrats d'assurance-vie et la Slovénie avant de s'étendre à d'autres gammes et pays. Comme l'explique Gabrijel Škof : « Les courtiers et commerciaux d'AS sont les ambassadeurs de notre développement. ALLFINANZ ne se contente pas d'accélérer et de clarifier leur travail auprès des clients, mais supprime également les étapes du processus réalisées sur papier et réduit les erreurs humaines. C'est un double avantage sur un marché concurrentiel. » Maja Benko, directeur exécutif du pôle Assurance-vie et retraite, souligne : « À chacune des étapes, nous avons demandé à notre équipe commerciale d'évaluer notre orientation ainsi que l'utilité et la facilité de compréhension du logiciel. Cet outil commercial va nous permettre de moderniser notre entreprise et d'atteindre un taux de traitement direct automatisé de 60 %. » AS a acquis une licence pour utiliser le serveur ALLFINANZ Interview ainsi que les composants Rules Designer et Publisher.

Adriatic Slovenica, whose 15 percent market share propels it into second position among Adriatic life insurance carriers, announces it will soon finalise end-to-end automation. ALLFINANZ Interview Server by Munich Re Automation Solutions Ltd. enables fully electronic client applications while streamlining the carrier's internal processes to reduce costs and retain income. Three years ago, Gabrijel Škof, President of Adriatic Slovenica's Management Board, saw that the costs, delays and high error rates of paper applications and underwriting were constricting acquisition of new customers and slowing internal processes. Škof began steps to automate a sales portal for the benefit of insureds, sales teams and the company's bottom line. ALLFINANZ life insurance automated underwriting software was chosen for its global acceptance and business flexibility. "As the first life insurance carrier in the Adriatic region to automate every phase from application through underwriting to claims," says Škof. "We will enhance market share by delivering superior, faster and clearer service to customers. A contract that once took three weeks to research, investigate and underwrite will soon finalise in minutes." Last year, Adriatic Slovenica d.d. (AS) rose to 15 percent market share, earned nearly €300 million in premiums, and netted over €14 million in profits. It provides life, health, home/property, vehicle, accident, travel/vacation insurance and retirement/savings plans. Automation will first address life insurance sales and roll out in Slovenia, then is planned to expand to other lines and countries. Škof explains, "The AS sales staff and brokers are ambassadors for expansion. As ALLFINANZ speeds and clarifies their work with customers, the software also strips out paper steps and human error downstream. It's our double advantage in a competitive market." Maja Benko, Executive Director Life and Pension Insurance, says, "At every step, we asked our sales teams to assess our direction, helpfulness and ease of understanding. This business tool will streamline our company and help us reach 60 percent straight-through paperless processing." AS licensed the ALLFINANZ Interview Server with Rules Designer and Publisher.
