Middle Schoolers Dream Big with Their Solar- and Battery-Powered Cars (Event sponsored by NREL) 
http://www.nrel.gov/news/features/2016/31688

Welcome to an exciting new GreenMoney issue featuring five perspectives on the World of Energy Today and Tomorrow:

Carol Laible of Domini Social Investments talks about the implications of Climate Change and Divesting from Fossil Fuels. Garvin Jabusch of Green Alpha Advisors looks at the Structural (and Possibly Abrupt) Decline of Fossil Fuels. Nancy Pfund of DBL Partners tells about the Future of Energy in the Developing World. Doug Arent of the Joint Institute for Strategic Energy Analysis believes, after Paris Agreement, the Smart Bet is on a Clean Energy Future. Clint Wilder of Clean Edge reports on the States that are Leading the Transition to the Clean Energy Economy.

As we were finishing this issue, one of our contributors, Nancy Pfund of DBL Partners, was named in the June issue of Fast Company as “One of the 100 Most Creative People in Business.” She was chosen for ‘finding a good return on social impact’ with her early investment in Tesla, Revolution Foods and SolarCity.

In truth, every time we thought we were done with this issue another great article would show up in our email. You will find a variety of those additional articles below.

So, yes, we are becoming more optimistic about the innovative solutions being developed to meet the complex global challenges we face in our collective future.

– Cliff Feigenbaum, founder / publisher   EMAIL CLIFF
