Investors Prepare for Climate Change
November 15, 2015
On Nov. 11, I read an article in The New York Times about how
investors are preparing for climate change. It was a reminder that, even
as politicians and pundits continue to claim that their own assumptions
trump the scientific data, those who must deal in reality – like
investors, the Pentagon, and the insurance industry – are all continuing
to take climate change into account.
As world leaders prepare for
the upcoming climate change conference in Paris, we would do well to
contact our elected officials and remind them that this is a serious
matter, and that they need to support policies that will help to reduce
carbon dioxide emissions.
