Climate Change Provides Investment Opportunities

Oct 10, 2007
Experts are predicting that climate change is going to reshape investment returns and investment opportunities over the next few years. With eleven of the last 12 years ranking as the warmest on record, people have to face up to the fact that global warming is happening and will have an effect on everyone.

While people are facing up to the realities of global warming investment opportunities are going to be popping up all over the place. This is because new technologies and going to be developed in a bid to slow down global warming and people will have no choice but to use these new tools.

In the northern hemisphere, summers are now one and a half months longer than they were a couple of decades ago. It is also feared that if Iceland's ice sheet melts, sea levels will rise by seven metres which will wipe out a lot of Pacific islands and reshape the coasts of other countries.

These climate changes mean that the world needs new technology to deal with preventing further damage very quickly. Companies are likely to introduce new ways of producing cleaner energy and using it more efficiently. This is going to provide great investment opportunities as everyone will be desperate to get their hands on new technology that does such things.

Australia is one of the biggest culprits of greenhouse emitters followed by the United States and Canada. Experts believe that countries such as Russia and Canada will enjoy longer growing sessions and will be able to produce food more efficiently while other countries will have their production slashed by long droughts and lack of irrigation water. Weather patterns will also be more volatile and unpredictable which will cause problems for growing crops.

Some people believe that climate change is going to present the biggest investment opportunities of a lifetime and be even bigger than rapid technological changes. Carbon trading, which is due to begin after 2012 will create a whole new asset class for investors to comprehend and will feature as a factor in company financials.

It is very likely that energy and water prices will go up which means that water saving devises will be in high demand. This will make good investment opportunities for people wishing to put their money in this industry. Water recycling and desalination plants will have to be built and homes and offices will need to become more energy efficient providing yet more investment opportunities.

These developments are very likely to have an effect on companies and investment returns in years to come as new products are development and investment opportunities created.
