World's Leading Risk Analyst Bringing Climate Debate to U.S.

The world's leading risk analyst, the reinsurance giant Lloyd's of London, has once again raised the red flag over climate change, per this article in the Insurance Journal.
Trevor Maynard, Lloyd's manager of emerging risks, says flatly: “Climate change is a very real threat. It would be unthinkable for us to ignore one of the biggest dangers we face in the coming decades.”
In the constant (and often idiotic) debate over climate change, the single rationale that deniers have mounted to explain the alleged worldwide “scientific conspiracy” to frighten the public about global warming is that the greatest scientists or our time are scuffling for government research grants.
