The "Global Warming."

August 2008
Claims;Aug2008, Vol. 56 Issue 8, p22
The article focuses on the global warming phenomenon, how it will trigger insurance claims, and whether such claims are not included under a typical absolute pollution exclusion found in commercial general liability (CGL) policies. Among the principal greenhouse gases are carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide. It notes that a typical CGL policy requires an insurance firm to pay all sums for which the insured becomes legally obligated to pay as damages caused by bodily injury, property damage, subject to exclusions.

    This paper describes the developments that transformed the global warming problem from that arising solely from CO2 increase to the trace-gas greenhouse effect problem in which several non-CO2 gases, CFCs, CH4, N2O, O3 and others contribute as much as CO2. Observed trace-gasincreases, including...

    Methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O) are the two most important non-carbon dioxide (CO2) greenhouse gases (GHGs) that play a critical role in shaping the global climate. Their concentrations in the atmosphere have been significantly increased by human activities. CH4 has contributed to an...

    The objective of this study was to assess the radiative forcing due to Finnish anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions in three scenarios. All the Kyoto Protocol gases, i.e., CO2, CH4, N2O, and fluorinated gases, were included. The calculations showed that forcing due to Finnish emissions will...
