Green Lights April 28: Top stories this week
Don't miss a single story: The best from Callaway Climate Insights this week
. . . . Welcome to Green Lights, our weekly roundup of the best of Callaway Climate Insights. Let’s take a walk on the wild side: from watching out for climate finance investment opportunities as the bear gives way to the bull, to what the bears are doing in the backcountry. It’s National Park Week! Go take a hike this weekend. But don’t feed the bears. Here are the highlights in a simple and convenient format that makes it easy for our readers. It’s also easy to subscribe.
. . . . The turn of a bear market back into a bull is always a great time to spec out what the next big thing will be for investors, and we’ve had no shortage this spring. From juicy stories on AI to boring (but profitable?) old solar and wind, David Callaway spotlights which are poised to profit.
. . . . Almost half of American households aren’t even moderately concerned about the environment. Mark Hulbert writes this is why red state politicians have found such fertile ground for their anti-ESG attacks, and why companies appear to be pulling back from some of their earlier climate pledges.
. . . . Southern Utah’s Bryce Canyon National Park, above, celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, is an amazing landscape of red rocks, endless vistas and home to more hoodoos than anywhere else on Earth. (Hoodoos = irregular columns of rock.) Also, National Park Week runs now through April 30.
. . . . Heavier cars. Lighter wine bottles and baseballs. Global warming is making its mark, Matthew Diebel writes in his weekly insights column.
. . . . Hot water: The global sea surface hit a new record high temperature this month. It’s never warmed this much this fast, and scientists are concerned it will add to global warming. At the same time, NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center has issued an El Nino Watch as part of its April ENSO outlook. This world map shows sea surface temperature anomalies during one of the strongest El Nino events on record in 2016.
. . . . While most eyes were on Tesla’s sales and earnings, a bold new entrant to the troubled charging station market arrived in the form of Italian electricity giant Enel Group, writes David Callaway. Enel said that a subsidiary called Enel X Way plans to open as many as 10,000 public charging stations across the country.
