"This is one-stop shopping for this kind of information. We provide it with the click of a mouse."

CASL charges $30 for a premium environmental risk assessment for a particular address. The company's Web site also provides free educational material about climate change and a free report that focuses on shoreline reduction at a national level.

The address-based premium report contains information on the possible impacts of global warming, hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, wildfires, drought, floods, industrial pollution and disease. The analysis combines historical data and state-of-the-art forecasting science.

One of the company's missions is to increase public understanding of climate change and other environmental issues. Therefore, 50 percent of CASL's net profits will fund environmental research. CASL will make the resulting information available for non-commercial uses.

"The education aspects of the model are important to all of us, and the
