The weather catastrophes of 2016 show the potential effects of unchecked climate change. There are now many indications that certain events -- such as persistent weather systems or storms bringing torrential rain and hail -- are more likely to occur in certain regions as a result of climate change,"It's not new to see insurance companies issue warnings about climate change. They've been doing so for years.
