The article explains that scientific consensus on climate change has prompted insurance companies and individual insurers to introduce products that deals with the causes and exposures of global warming. Several projects in the U.S. was undertaken by insurance groups regarding greenhouse gas emissions. In Canada, the main area of activity by insurance companies is in the renewable energy marketplace. It is reported that the insurance industry's response to climate change is not favourable.
