Sanders warns consumers of climate change, natural disasters

Posted On Thu, March 8, 2012

Senator Bernie Sanders recently released a statement informing Americans about the importance of being aware of the risk of natural disasters and commended insurance companies for being ahead of the curve informing consumers of these dangers.

Both Sanders and Senator Sheldon Whitehorse spoke at a press conference on global warming, according to the statement. The two represent Vermont and Rhode Island, respectively. Both states were significantly damaged during Hurricane Irene last summer. Overall, 14 major storms hit the United States during 2011, and caused approximately $1 billion in damage.

"Perhaps no industry better understands the impact of global warming than the insurance industry whose job it is to analyze risk," Sanders said. "I am pleased leaders in that industry are speaking out about the need to reverse global warming."

While disaster insurance is not typically coupled with home insurance, it may be important for consumers to make sure they have both in order to feel completely covered. One of the best ways to find top home insurance rates is to compare home insurance quotes.
