Welcome to Blue & Green Tomorrow’s Guide to Climate Change 2013. As one of the defining issues not just of our generation, but of recent human history, manmade climate change is a major threat to our way of life.
Sitting down to plan the report, we didn’t want to simply look at the science behind it. There are plenty of excellent publications that outline the fundamentals. Furthermore, the scientific consensus that humans contribute to global warming – over 97% agree, since you ask – means arguing over the science is pointless. We may as well do a Guide to Tobacco with the subheading, ‘Does it really cause cancer?’ The scientific consensus among scientists exploring each issue is almost identical.
No, we wanted to go a step further and give practical action. And that’s why we’re focusing on investment and divestment.
The all-powerful investment world can and must be used as a force that benefits society and the environment upon which we all depend. We could be investing in technologies that help mitigate the worst effects of climate change: from cleantech to bluetech; sustainable transport to responsible agriculture. Similarly, we should put pressure on investors to ditch the fossil fuel stocks that have got us into this mess.
As Bill McKibben said in 350.org’s Do the Math documentary film, “If it’s wrong to wreck the climate, it’s wrong to profit from that wreckage.” There are countless ways you can help heal the climate, and profit from that healing process.
You’d have to question the morality, ethics and financial nous of the investor who chooses to wreck our climate instead.
