Blown cover – Changing weather could put insurance firms out of business | Finance and economics

THE PILOTS of the Port of London Authority are the cabbies of the Thames estuary. Based in Gravesend, 33km from the capital, they navigate some 10,000 ships into London terminals every year.

They are essential links in supply lines relied on by south-east England for everything from food to fuel. But when winds are too strong, pilots cannot board ships. If delays accumulate, terminals get clogged. The fiercer storms that could soon come to British shores could paralyse trade for days. Such a chain reaction is an example of the costs carbon emissions may bring.

She applies her shopping skills as part of her image-consultant business, VisibleEDGE Resources in Addison, Texas. Her services range from assessing clients’ psychological profiles to giving lessons in etiquette. “But the shopping part is the fun part,” she says.
