It’s a fair point. I was using this 2X2 for demonstration purposes. By “doubt” on the upper left, I partly mean that the science isn’t a big driver vs. a risk assessment that builds resilience into a system. But as I say in the article, business (including insurance) is further to the right of that box, on the line really with group 4. My point is that the majority of business, at least in their public statements, takes a pragmatic tone and doesn’t address the science too directly. Again, that’s changing right now as a couple hundred large companies are setting science-based targets. But, yes, the reinsurers at least have been on the same page as scientists for years…
