    lost, in dollars and cents, when we lose Miami. They just shrug. No one knows. No one knows where to start calculating this. It's as if the language hasn't been invented yet.

      Actual structures, property, loss of business, relocation and re-set-up costs.

      I'm confident insuers and reinsuers have a good grasp what it all will cost. They've been talking about, predicting, worrying about, discussing and calculating this stuff since at least the 1990s.

      But no one wants to ask them because that means they can't have their cake and pretend the cake isn't causing environmental collapse.

      So if you get hit by a bus tonight, would you be satisfied with how you spent today, your last day on earth? Live like tomorrow is never guaranteed, because it's not. -- Me.
