A NAIC "Climate Change and Global Warming Task Force" recommended February 25, 2009, that large insurers be required to disclose how they are addressing the implications of climate change and global warming on their operations, investment strategy and solvency. If endorsed by the NAIC Executive Committee at the March meeting, the "Climate Risk Disclosure Survey" will begin in May 2010. The disclosures are controversial within the industry, with some worrying that such disclosures would be a prelude to the imposition of regulatory requirements adjusting industry practices for climate change factors. Because federal climate change legislation is much more likely in this Congress due to the advocacy of the Obama Administration, these issues could bleed over into optional federal charter debates.
