Author Hopes Climate Change Cartoon Novel Will Win Investors Profit


An economist and illustrator teamed up and published a graphic novel to explain climate change. 'Stand-up' economist Yoram Bauman, author of The Cartoon Introduction to Climate Change tells TheStreet's Joe Deaux that an important question for investors to answer for themselves is whether they take climate change seriously, because it can affect their decisions of what energy companies to invest in and whether they're going to purchase a home near shorelines. Bauman also says tradition oil giants like Exxon Mobil and Chevron may one day be leaders in the climate change of discussion, but he doesn't expect them to take that position yet.
