Letter to the Editor: Deny Home, Property Insurance for Climate Change Deniers

There is climate change despite what our well-funded government leaders say. Climate change is costing every one of us in some way. Whether it is the strong winds that blow down trees and take off roofs, multi-vehicle accidents on our roads caused by crazy weather, hail damage to crops, roofs and cars, 60 degree temperatures in February, or the frequent flooding or droughts that are becoming regular occurrences, we are paying for these problems with higher insurance premiums. I suggest, that in honor of Earth Day, any politician who denies climate change should not be allowed to buy home or personal property insurance. Might this give them pause to think about climate change differently?
