Another IPCC warning (2): après nous, le déluge (4)

Last Monday, the IPCC issued its 6th assessment report on climate change (report). Their timing is remarkable as we are still being made scared about the latest coronavirus mutant (eg, Reuters).

Stranded mortgage assets

During a phone call this week, I mentioned that one of my 2019 relocation criteria had been the elevation of my current location. Subsequently, I wondered if banks are already considering amending their Expected Loss calculations for (mortgages on) commercial and residential properties, following climate change.
