BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Climate change may take a bite out of Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving climate change

What is Thanksgiving without a side of cranberry sauce? Climate change – a top concern of insurers and risk managers – could soon take Thanksgiving staples like sweet potatoes and cranberries off the menu.

Rising global temperatures and more frequent extreme weather events are altering growing seasons and changing crop yield productions, ABC News reports.

These changes are causing harvest yields in Thanksgiving staples such as sweet potatoes and cranberries to decrease significantly, Himanshu Gupta, co-founder and CEO of ClimateAi, a climate adaptation platform for food and agricultural supply chains, told ABC News.

As a result, essential food items could become more costly and scarce, leading to a few substitutes in recipes.

“Climate change is a culture crisis,” Mr. Gupta said. “It’s also impacting our traditions and cultures in ways never seen before, and one example of that is Thanksgiving.”
