In the wake of yet another monster storm in the Northeastern U.S., we are once again reminded of the need to address climate change, which is like a Grendel that keeps coming out of its cave to ravage us with increasingly violent weather.


The President outlined new initiatives on climate change in the State of the Union address on Tuesday. If they gain traction in Washington, it will give a boost to stocks and exchange-traded funds that invest in alternative energy and global warming solutions.


"If Congress won't act soon to protect future generations, I will," President Obama said. "I will direct my Cabinet to come up with executive actions we can take, now and in the future, to reduce pollution, prepare our communities for the consequences of climate change, and speed the transition to more sustainable sources of energy,"


It is difficult to say how these proposals, which have been bandied about Washington for years, will make it through a Congress more focused on fiscal issues and spending cuts. Yet even a modest increase in funding for alternative energy or a cap-and-trade carbon emissions program can revive a beleaguered sector. Here are some of the funds and stocks that will benefit:

Global Warming Solutions - Find Ways to Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

In 2006, An Inconvenient Truth woke the world up to the reality of the climate crisis. But global leaders failed to act, and climate change has accelerated, making the film’s message more urgent than ever. We have curated a collection of activities for you to get informed, get involved, use the power of your wallet, and mobilize your networks to send a message that climate change matters to you. Taken together, these actions will have a huge ripple effect. This is the challenge of our time. It’s up to us to solve it!

Does Global Warming Effect Our Fauna and Flora? Sure it does!

Global warming is having a significant impact on hundreds of plant and animal species around the world -- although the most dramatic effects may not be felt for decades, according to a new study in the journal Nature.

"Birds are laying eggs earlier than usual, plants are flowering earlier and mammals are breaking hibernation sooner,"

"Clearly, if such ecological changes are now being detected when the globe has warmed by an estimated average of only 1 degree F (0.6 C) over the past 100 years, then many more far-reaching effects on species and ecosystems will probably occur by 2100, when temperatures could increase as much as 11 F (6 C)."
