In 2018 we developed research and isolated data sets to create some simple graphics and messages. Our social community engaged heavily with these posts and we have compiled the most popular charts and messages below. Number 1: We can see that CO2 is climbing every year. People argue about the source of this CO2 and
Beef production is an environmentally destructive process unless producers are conscious and aware of best practices to reduce high greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, land degradation, and feed-food competition. Estimates by various sources (IPCC, FAO, EPA and others) place the contribution of livestock as a whole to global anthropogenic GHG emissions at 7–18% and beef consumption
In 2017, we shared some of the preliminary research that has led us to publish a breakthrough report of epic proportion. With the cost of climate change on the rise, it is important for investors to consider the long-term effects of their investments. We are especially interested in explaining the long-term risk and responsibility of
World Wildlife Fund works in partnership with the Colombian government to protect and monitor 49.5 million acres of natural forest.

As a former macro hedge fund manager, who has spent nearly 25 years trying to quantify financial risks, I believe that climate change is the least
Researchers at MIT's Laboratory for Aviation and the Environment (LAE) have extensive expertise in analyzing the atmospheric impacts of aviation, transportation, and other emissions sources. In 2017, LAE prepared the first facility-level analysis of the air quality-driven health impacts of facilities attributed to the companies in the FTSE Russell-1000 Index, broken down by impacted state.
