Captain Pension Planet

A collection of Pension Funds is using their influence to make a large oil company disclose its “climate-related vulnerabilities”.

“You may or may not believe man-made climate change is real or dismiss the science behind it. No matter. Climate change has arrived as an investment issue.”

I like the True Cost logic of this: How useful is your retirement pension if you collect it in a world that’s less secure, with less food, with more violent weather, less breathable air, etc.?

I don’t want to sound too much like Reason.com…but can the Market (of ideas, $, etc.) actually work in favor of cleaner energy and environmental sustainability? I think Yes when there is more flow of information and more people able to define their stake in the global economy.

Weird. It’s like, if you have more true inclusion in the market and more open communication, then you get better results.
