    QUICK NEWS, April 3: The Ethics Of Energy; Solar Eye Candy; Wind Puts The Economy To Work

    The Ethics Of Energy Jeremy Grantham puts down a marker on climate change investing; The spike in the coal price underlines the challenge investors face in dealing with climate change

    Dan McCrum, April 2, 2017 (Financial Times)

    “…[Climate change raises serious questions for] portfolio managers around the world: when, and how, should investors take climtarget="_blank"ate change into account when deciding what to buy and sell?...[They] used to be shunted to teams responsible for developing policies on environmental, social and governance issues…[but the potential consequences for financial stability from climate change require] a reassessment of the value of a large range of assets as costs and opportunities become apparent…[Divesting all polluters could result in having an empty] portfolio…[Too little commitment leaves those concerned] wanting better options and data…The point is that analysis and activism start to collide as investors are forced to consider both the potential effects of climate change and the weight of money taking account of carbon…[but there] are really successful areas to be involved with…” click here for more

    Solar Eye Candy This Solar Panel Design Moves With the Sun Through The Arc of a Day; Smartflower is a new solar panel that provides 40-50 percent more efficiency that traditional panels

    John Gendall, March 31, 2017 (Architectural Digest)

    “…[The Arnold Schwarzenegger-endorsed Smartflower is] a photovoltaic array that mimics the sun-seeking inclinations of a flower…[This design reportedly] results in 40-50 percent more efficiency than a traditional photovoltaic array…Unlike solar panels, which are normally fixed into place on rooftops, Smartflower is kinetic, allowing it to position itself to maximize sun exposure. In the morning, when the sun rises, its panels fan out, creating a flower-like arrangement, which then rotates throughout the day in response to sunlight. In its dormant, night-time position, it undergoes a cleaning process, minimizing the sunlight interference that dust build-up can present…[T] he system can be installed in any open space then easily plugged in…” click here for more

    Wind Puts The Economy To Work Wind Power Grows America’s Economy And Keeps Our Air Clean

    Hannah Hunt, April 2017 (Total Health Magazine)

    “…[H]ere's one thing all Americans can agree on: we want to have clean air and a healthy economy. Because of technologies like wind energy, we don't have to choose one over the other…Growing wind power powers American job creation and economic development, while over time increasing U.S. energy independence by using a homegrown, emission-free electricity source…Over 100,000 Americans are employed by the wind industry today, across all 50 states…Over 25,000 of these [are well-paying manufacturing positions at the nation's more than 500 factories that build the blades, towers, and other parts that go into wind turbines and provide]…Importantly, many of these new manufacturing jobs are found across the Rust Belt, hiring workers where they're needed the most. Ohio leads the way with 62 wind factories, while Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan boast 26 each…And these jobs will continue growing. Wind manufacturing jobs will grow to 33,000 by the end of President Trump's first term…By 2020, there could by 248,000 wind-related jobs…” click here for more
