The document is comprised of three sections: (i) section one presents a brief history of ocean warming since the mid-1900s; (ii) section two demonstrates the impact of ocean warming on extreme events, including sea level rise, cyclones, and convective storms; (iii) section three discusses the internal and external impacts on the insurance industry, and encourages the promotion of risk mitigation.
