Green Investments Report by Conserv-A-Store week ending 12-23-11

Here's your Green Investments Report for the week ending 12-23-11

Today we will speak a bit about the monetary value of pollution and will continue to discuss this subject in upcoming posts

It always interests us that some feel that man does not pollute at all in his life.

I usually ask these people to please go out to their auto, switch on the ignition, and go stick their mouths over their auto exhaust pipe. For whatever reason they seem reluctant to do this.
Yes man does  pollute as a result of his existence on the Earth. The only good news is there is a way to profit from this pollution.

Carbon trading is here to stay. The Aussies, very smart people but a large per capita contributor of Green House gases due to their mining activity have recently agreed to a carbon style tax. This means that pollution has a value. 

This tax can also lead to invention and change. BBC writes that," The country's mining firms, airlines, steel makers and energy firms are among those expected to be hardest hit by the tax....But the government hopes that the legislation will force innovation in renewable energy supplies, and free Australia from its reliance on fossil fuels." to read full article Australia Senate backs Carbon Tax go here

Some Green economists believe there should be a movement away from tax on income and  more to tax on things that damage the human being. Obviously the population has bought into this as far as tobacco and alcohol are concerned. The Europeans have bought into taxing oil and gas use at a much greater extent than the US. Now we see the Aussies following this structure in a large way with a pollution tax.

Sadly it is not real easy to trade carbon currently unless your are very rich-we hope this changes soon. We will write more about how to make monies by trading pollution credits in an upcoming Green Investing Report Greentopics Blogpost.

Here's your portfolio for the next to last week of 2011.
We will begin 2012 with many new green investments about doubling the portfolio size and we will try to make money this year instead of letting laggards lie. Winslow Green Growth and New Alternatives show that diversity helps but they are still losing money for 2011.
If you like our report and want to suggest investments to put in the portfolio just send us an email.
