I caught this one a little late, but thought it might still be useful. The Globe & Mail, Canada’s main national newspaper, is running, in its investment section, a segment on investing in climate change. I didn’t find all of it useful, but there are some interesting nuggets of information that are worth sharing. More specifically, I enjoyed the piece on cleantech ETFs called “Go clean, invest green“. It discusses The PowerShares WilderHill Clean Energy Portfolio [AMEX:PBW], the PowerShares WilderHill Progressive Energy Portfolio [AMEX:PUW], the PowerShares Cleantech Portfolio [AMEX:PZD] and the Claymore/LGA Green ETF [AMEX:GRN]. I also liked the piece entitled “Liquid assets” on investing in water. One key omission by the author, however, is the PowerShares Water Resources ETF [AMEX:PHO]. Unfortunately, the links provided above will probably only work until the end of February, after which you will have to fetch the segment in the Archives section under Issue #47. DISCLOSURE: The author does not hold any positions in any of the securities discussed above.
