Top 5 Clean Energy Companies To Invest In Right Now
In the U.S., when the topic of clean energy comes up, we like to debate concepts like climate change or global warming, turning it into a political debate more than a strategic one. Subsidies to industries such as wind or solar, no matter how small, take criticism from politicians and the media while the government continues to subsidizes oil, gas, coal, and nuclear production to the tune of billions of dollars each year. We neglect to account for externalities such as the cost of war ships keeping the Suez Canal open when Iran threatens to close it, oil spills inland and offshore, the wars in Iraq, and the limited liability given to the operators’ nuclear plants. If Fukishima happened here, it would be no problem for U.S. companies — Uncle Sam would pick up the tab.
In China, the energy debate is very different. When China sees its imports of coal rising and dependence on foreign oil growing, it springs into action. Not by screaming, “Drill, baby, drill,” but by investing billions of dollars in home-grown energy sources. Yes, I’m talking about clean, renewable energy, and China’s investment in these energy sources make U.S. subsidies look like the half-hearted effort they are.
