SÃO PAULO, Brazil (Callaway Climate Insights) — For the past four years, I have written about climate change in Latin America as the region’s chief correspondent for Callaway Climate Insights. I have stood witness to the controversies, the heartaches, and the sense of joy when positive climate change policies make progress — or disappoint.
In that regard, I have put together my own list for investors of New Year’s resolutions for 2024.
If Latin America succeeds in meeting some of its climate change goals, celebrate those wins! But don’t be disappointed if Latin America doesn’t meet the world’s goals and expectations. The region is a conglomerate of Third World countries and doesn’t have the technologies to combat climate change and relies on its abundance of natural resources to supply the economies and feed its people.
