For those learning daf yomi.
Daf 30a Kesuvos. Tosfos D"H Hakol Biyadei Shamayim...:
(https://dafyomi.co.il/kesuvos/halachah/ks-hl-030.htm)
11. Question: We expounded (Bava Basra 144b): "Hash-m will remove from you all illness" to refer to the cold!
12. Answer #1 (Tosfos, ibid.): He will warm the world or give you clothing, so you will not need to be careful.

This means that Global Warming can either be that Hashem will warm the world and its a positive thing or that Hashem will allow it to happen because its a positive thing.
But either way. Global Warming is a positive thing for the world.

Man-made global warming is just one of the bluffs of the liberals. That’s all it is. There’s nothing to it at all.

she's pretty dumb for not being able to explain and she's pretty dumb for requiring an explanation.
Without knowing much about climate change or looking up what net zero means, presumably those 2 muts know what "net" and "zero" mean.
I assume it means getting rid of greenhouse gas emissions either by
1.reducing actual causes
2. Whatever is left, is naturally re-absorbed (or whatever the correct terminology is) by nature.
This is not rocket science whether you agree with the ore.ise and/or solutions or not.

he does not say why they made the change and why it’s incorrect.

Florida insurance rates are nuts; in comments he says it's due to GW.

Then the next commenter (Aaron Kurlansky) says it's due to frivolous claims. Does Joseph give more background on GW? And does FL have higher frivolous claims than other states that their insurance is higher?

Yeah, dunno why FL would have higher amounts of frivolous claims than other states.

I'm assuming Joseph heard that reason from the insurers. And Aaron is opining that it's really just a front for the frivolous claims?

I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.
