Comment There won't be an end to insurance (Score 5, Insightful) 648

There are too many other things insurance pays for besides hitting another car. For example hail storm damage, tree falling on your car or an unavoidable cow jumping in front of you on a bind corner. Not to mention cruising at 50 miles an hour and hitting an ice patch or getting hit by that guy who still actually likes to "drive" his truck.

My kid is in the fourth grade, each day I send him off to school I feel like I'm pimping him out. They almost always have some fundraiser packet that I'm suppose to devote my personal time taking my kid out and try to sell nonsensical bullshit to strangers.

I really don't see climate change knee jerker's being any different.
