Who says Halloween has to be filled with plastic trinkets, decorations, and disposable costumes to be fun? Not me! The sad fact is that on average, Americans buy $3.4 billion worth of costumes every year and most of those will be thrown out after just one use. In the UK, an estimated 2,000 tonnes of plastic waste is generated from throwaway Hallowe…
 
Throughout history Solar flares have swept the earth, creating nothing more than a planet wide lightshow for the human race. However, in the digital age, we are uniquely vulnerable. Even relatively weak events can destroy our uniquely vulnerable power grids – leaving whole regions in blackout for months, even years. Powerful events, like the 1859 C…
 
For a long time women have been fed messages that they can (and need to) “bounce back” after pregnancy. It’s as if growing a human is a temporary inconvenience and your body should snap back into place like a rubber band that has been stretched out and is now allowed to recoil freely. At most, we’re told that things should be “back to normal” at 6 …
 
Batteries are now at the center of geopolitical competition. Lithium extraction and processing is not going to meet forecasted demand. All the mineral components of batteries have environmental impacts, especially cobalt and graphite. It’s against this backdrop that commodity traders are investing in battery recycling. Can and how are batteries rec…
 
When I talk with people about living with less and decluttering, a lot of the conversations end up coming back to money - whether it’s spending it or saving it. And it’s not surprising. There are a lot of similarities when it comes to the stuff in our home. Savers might have less items or choose to DIY more. Spenders often have more decor or season…
 
We are living in the Human Age and climate change presents an existential threat to humanity. For the commodities sector, it is the key driver of opportunities and challenge, from selecting strategies to pricing future risks. Growing awareness of the impacts is profoundly affecting society and companies alike. But what is climate change and to what…
 
Are you the parent to a strong-willed child? Guess what…that’s actually a good thing. Hear me out...even though strong-willed kids are spirited and courageous, they strive to learn things for themselves instead of just accepting what others say. While we know deep down that these are great qualities as they grow up and become more self-sufficient y…
 
The Commodity Futures Trading Commission regulates commodities futures markets and enforces the Commodity Exchange Act in the US. As such, it sets the tone for much of the global regulation governing the sector. In such a global, dynamic and evolving market, the CFTC has its work cut out. It also has teeth, exacting significant fines on transgresso…
 
How many times have you wanted to declutter a space, but have given up before it even starts because it just seemed like such a big task that it felt too overwhelming. Yeah, I think we’ve all been there. But, I am here to tell you the days of a giant, all-day declutter sesh are over!! I mean sure…if you're a glutton for punishment and you want to s…
 
The commodities sector has never been under more financing pressure. Yet, many traditional financiers have scaled back their capabilities or exited the space altogether. To fill this void, alternative financing has emerged from a range of sources including hedge funds, trade-finance funds, and other asset managers – bringing with it a new set of co…
 
Wanna hear something crazy? The fashion industry is accountable for 8%–10% of overall greenhouse gas emissions. Wow! That’s a big impact our closets and shopping habits are making. The good news is that we can do something about it. That’s one of the reasons I am so passionate about capsule wardrobes. They are a total win-win. They help you: make i…
 
Energy transition will be revolutionary. Fundamental to that statement is recognition that solar and batteries are technologies, not fuels. Their technological journeys have just begun - as have their consequences for societies, economics and for individuals. This is the biggest opportunity since the development of the combustion engine for the ene…
 
Kids…they make life amazing and I, for one, am thrilled that I get to be a parent. But, that doesn't always mean it’s easy. Especially because most of us go into it without any idea of what we are in for. There is no manual or game plan that you’re handed when you become a parent. Sure, there are books to read and parent groups you can join, and wh…

With conversations about mental health on the rise, it’s incredibly important that we start helping our children learn how to recognize their emotions early in life. In fact, according to the National Institutes of Health, nearly 1 in 3 of all adolescents ages 13 to 18 will experience an anxiety disorder. That number is just staggering, and the tre…
 
At root, the rise in global food prices is tied to energy. The rise in energy prices is fundamentally driven by a lack of investment in hydrocarbons. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has tipped rising prices into the genesis of a crisis. The invasion has deepened the divide between energy exporters and importers, with profound and increasing impacts on…

Fifteen years ago, money was flowing into oil. Prices were high and the stock market rewarded successful exploration above all.
