Dear Mr. Bast:

On behalf of the Association of Bermuda Insurers and Reinsurers (ABIR) we write to disavow any future relationship with your organization. Recent revelations of the Heartland Institute’s radical position on climate change as portrayed on the new billboard featuring Ted Kaczynski made our association with other parts of your organization untenable.

ABIR members have supported climate science research and believe that public policy action is necessary to address this important environmental issue. We have supported the work of Eli Lehrer’s insurance reform project, but we can no longer support that work via the Heartland Institute.
