“Lloyd’s 2030 deadline is not justified by climate science and the urgent need for action.”

Enough said. There is no justification.

Although this sounds like good news, please note that we US taxpayers are the insurer of last resort and have historically been the only insurer who does not place limits on payouts to corporations.

Too little; too late.

I would like to add two other criminal atrocities and institutionalized crimes that must be addressed; the wholesale extinction of animal species and the poisoning of humans as well as those other species by the largely unregulated chemical poison conglomerate and killing as a business.
.
The first example is the Department of Agriculture’s division called “Wildlife services” that exists only to kill wildlife by the millions annually, often by the most depraved methods - taxpayer funded and criminal in its extinction activities, that blight on humanity, government and morality must be destroyed and removed from existence!.

The second is that chemical “industry” that is and has poisoned and polluted Mother Earth since its inception, that now IS an existential threat to all living things. The Monsatan example is poster-child,for disease-causing chemicals, largely untested allowed to be sold into society and the environment. Along with Bayer AG that bought Monsatan and continues the global genocide and disease pushing that costs the world trillions in real terms, the impunity for such monumental poisoning must be exposed and hels accountable!.

If humanity is to survive in any sustainable manner there must be accountability, and that requires governments so-far complicit and asleep at the wheel to confront both crimes against the planet, Natural World and humankind.
