Catastrophe-modeling firms view Northern California quake damage 28.8.2014 SFGate: Business & Technology
Insurance companies are good at predicting how much they will have to pay out each year in claims from fires, accidents, burglaries and other routine fiascos. What's much harder to forecast is the magnitude of losses they could face following catastrophes such as earthquakes, hurricanes, floods, tornadoes and pandemics. For that they turn to companies such as Risk Management Solutions of Newark. The Bay Area company is one of the nation's three main catastrophe-modeling firms, a niche business that got a big boost after Hurricane Andrew in 1992 and the Northridge earthquake in 1994. The others are AIR Worldwide of Boston and CoreLogic Eqecat of Oakland.

Meet the CNN Anchor Who Called Fox News "Ignorant Fucksticks" Over Climate Change 4.8.2014 Mother Jones
Last week, the internet went nuts about this tweet . It is not hard to see why: Weather is not climate, you willfully ignorant fucksticks. MT @foxnation : Climate Doesn't Cooperate With Al Gore http://t.co/QKe0PkyYQK — Bill Weir (@BillWeirCNN) July 31, 2014 Weir, a CNN anchor, was responding to this Washington Times article , which Fox Nation (a Fox News website ) highlighted under the headline, "Climate Doesn't Cooperate With Al Gore's Group's Visit to Denver EPA Hearings." It was a short piece noting that when Gore's Climate Reality Project attended an EPA climate change hearing at 9 a.m., "the temperature was a chilly 58 degrees. Plus, it was raining." Har-har. Weir was correct to point out in this context that weather isn't climate. The way he did so, however, was ill advised (even if internet-applauded), and he later sent out this apologizing tweet: The glop of Midwestern guilt stuck in my chest prob won't go away until I apologize to @foxnation for name-calling. Dumb move. My bad. — Bill Weir ...
