There have been quite a few investors who have begun to profit from climate change. Except for its not what you think! You would think it would be investment in things like renewable energy, water conservation, or conventional green products that you can buy or sell on a green marketplace.

They specialize in genetically adapting insects to control desease and over population. Its actually pretty cool!
One Sexy Mosquito
You might be asking your self what in gods name is that thing? Allow me to explain. They have created these supper sexy mosquitos to attract females. Think “peacocking” as it were. The beauty of these insects is that they do not have the ability to propagate their line.

This technology can be especially useful with outbreaks of West Niles where a targeted geography is affected.
You have to be a bit inspired by this approach. Click here for more info about the technology.
