Bruce Usher offers an indispensable guide to the risks and opportunities for investors as the world faces climate change. He explores the role that investment plays in reducing emissions to net zero by 2050, detailing how to finance the winners and avoid the losers in a transforming global economy. Companies that reduce greenhouse gas emissions will create great wealth, and, more importantly, they will provide a lifeline for humanity. This audiobook sets out a practical and actionable plan for investors that will alter the course of climate change.
The science is clear: By the mid-20th century, human beings must stop burning coal, oil, and natural gas. Reducing carbon emissions is not enough – they must be eliminated. Each individual “doing their part” is only a start. We heat our homes, light our rooms, power our cars, prepare our food, and produce and distribute consumer goods with the help of fossil fuels. A practical and visionary reimagining of the future is needed. Calling for a technical and spiritual ground-shift, this book proposes carbon boycotts as collective action, with groups and communities changing what products they consume and seeking new ways to work, live, and play to steer aggregate demand towards solar, wind, geothermal, and renewable energy alternatives.
