The bull case for alternative energy stocks is directly tied to humanity’s ability to cut back on their contributions to climate change. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in the UN more or less established the fact in a recent press release.
“The alarm bells are deafening, and the evidence is irrefutable: greenhouse‑gas emissions from fossil-fuel burning and deforestation are choking our planet and putting billions of people at immediate risk,” stated UN Secretary-General António Guterres, giving a “code red for humanity” during the IPCC.
While Main Street is debating how to achieve a more sustainable future, Wall Street is paying attention to clean energy stocks that focus on solar, wind, water and geothermal sources. As many countries have already pledged to be carbon neutral by mid-century under the Paris Agreement, alternative energy investments have been gaining momentum. The decarbonization of the global economy would require an estimated investment of more than $110 trillion over the next thirty years.
