"Global warming has emerged as a major market-moving force"

This USA Today article is a nice overview of how the global warming/alt energy movement is shaping investment decisions.

An interesting point that I've tried to make in a few of my previous posts:

"From an investors' standpoint, it doesn't matter if people believe global warming is real or if greenhouse gases are to blame..... What does matter is if consumers, regulators, governments and corporations react to the perceived threat."
Even if you are a global warming skeptic - do not overlook this issue when it comes to your portfolio - companies that adopt and innovate these clean technologies are going to have at least two things going for them:
1. They will be more popular with shareholders. A perfect example of this is TXU's fallout with the public over the construction of dirty coal plants. The controversy had a negative impact on the firm's share price which then made it a prime candidate for a takeover.

2. They will save money in the long-run and hopefully, will pass that on to shareholders in the form of buybacks and/or dividends. Yes, upfront costs for these clean technologies will be steep, but long term savings and lower threat of environmental related lawsuits

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I make money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my web site to get additional info.
