Dr Wenning: kill coal, save our planet

To Dr. Joachim Wenning, CEO of Munich Re, and all other insurance CEOs:

We're calling on you to stop insuring and investing in coal and tar sands. These are the worst fossil fuels driving climate change, and they pose a massive threat to the future of our planet and our children - as well as your insurance business.
