The BFD

The BFD
Jupiter Intelligence, a startup that sells climate change impact data to governments and private industry, raised $23 million in Series B funding led by Energize Ventures. Why it’s the BFD: Because our failure to effectively mitigate climate change means that we now must deal with its consequences. “Jupiter has aggressively hired top talent from government climate labs, both for its executive ranks and at the staff level, and is especially well-positioned to tackle systemic risk for the insurance sector. It’s no accident that insurance companies, especially the major reinsurers, have been advocating for climate action long before many politicians did; they’re afraid of sinking under a rising tide of natural disaster costs.”
