I’ve long been interested in climate action, and as I’ve become more interested in investing, I’ve become totally passionate about how to do sustainable investment RIGHT – or at least BETTER. In my last article about learning to invest sustainably, I wrote that it’s hard to find funds that truly align with my green sensibilities. But there is one that stood out for me, and in this interview with Amberjae Freeman from ETHO Capital, we dive into what ESG investing is, and what it ISN'

Electric utilities are keen on electric vehicles these days — they see them as a future revenue source. Utilities from California to Florida to Michigan are sponsoring the installation of public charging stations, and some are offering rebates to customers for installing home chargers. To date, at least 50 utilities in 25 states have launched or proposed programs to encourage the buildout of charging infrastructure

As of September 1, Exxon in no longer in the Top 10 of the S&P 500 and its weight in the index has slipped from 5% to just 1%. Oh, how the mighty have fallen!

My increasingly good friend Paul Fosse wrote an article yesterday giving 5 reasons to buy a Tesla before July 1. At the end of the article, he linked to a 2016 article of mine that I had forgotten about. It's a simple listicle but it's actually one of my favorite articles. So, thanks to Paul, I'm reposting it today. In 2016, it was titled, "30 Reasons Your Next Car Should Be Electric." At this point in time, I think it's more appropriate to say that you should buy that car today, not wait any longer. Hopefully you'll agree after reading through this list

Electric vehicles are getting close to a major tipping point, and it isn’t just fans who are taking notice. The powerful enemies of transportation electrification and renewable energy are beginning to launch a serious counterattack

Supermajors are taking on more renewable energy commitments lately as they prepare for a less carbon-intensive future. Some of them are going a step further, coupling these green commitments with humanist causes such as providing access to energy to part of the one billion people all over the world who have no electricity

There is a very short window of time to get out of pure-play oil & gas company investments without substantial losses. It is imperative to sell them now. It is already too late to get out of pure-play coal company investments without substantial losses. But they will lose even more money going forward

Apple's self-driving car project named Project Titan has been flying under the radar for some time now. The company certainly does not send out frequent updates on its efforts. Some have even speculated that the company has for all intents and purposes given up on the endeavor. However, multiple outlets, including CNBC, are reporting that Apple has made some key recent hires in this realm

As a result of numerous organizations filing lawsuits against Exxon in recent times in relation to anthropogenic climate change, the oil giant has now filed lawsuits against a large collection of people associated with these suits, alleging conspiracy.

Exxon Mobil shareholders earlier this year successfully voted to demand climate risk disclosure in a move which was widely held as a bellwether for similar moves across the sector, but a new report from Preventable Surprises has revealed that some of the largest investors in utilities are voting against climate risk disclosure, preferring private engagement over public proxy votes.

I recently got news of a hugely accomplished oil man dying. This guy was the top guy in charge of finding oil for Exxon across most of the USA (barring California and Alaska) when he retired. Years after retirement, he once told me that we had just gotten "spoiled" and our addiction to cheap oil was basically unsustainable

The idea of the president of any normal country also owning one of its largest assets and using his office to protect it seems outrageous. Putin used his position to gain wealth for himself and a small group of cronies, and is trying to prevent sanctions from reducing the value of that wealth

As the cleantech transition speeds up, many of us are jumping for joy. Trump may be king of tweetland, but he and his oil & gas buddies can't stop renewables or electric robotaxis. They know that. Their goals are pretty clear, though: pump up the carbon bubble as much as possible, stuff as much cash into their own bank accounts before it pops, and hopefully retire and die before the whole global economy is brought down with the the thin soapy liquid that was probably much prettier as a bubble

In his hearing to be confirmed as Secretary of State, Exxon’s Rex Tillerson portrayed himself as a Chief Executive Officer (and Board Chair) who had no idea what the company was doing in several areas, including that of his greatest responsibility: Russia

In Tillerson’s opening statement, which measured 2,155 words, the Exxon CEO mentioned Russia nine times, China nine times, and human rights six times. But he did not once utter the words “climate change,” “energy,” “oil,” or “ExxonMobil."
