Jan. 29 /CSRwire/ - New York, NY - January 29, 2008 - BusinessWeek Special Ad Sections and Environmental Defense will explore the implications of global warming for the $6 trillion world energy economy—and for all businesses-in a special advertising section this March. Global Warming: Big Risks, Big Rewards takes an insider's look at businesses and investors now sizing up the financial risks of climate change and the opportunities to profit from new solutions.

BusinessWeek will publish the special section in its March 17, 2008, Global Edition (on newsstands March 7), reaching 4.9 million readers worldwide.

The special section will focus on topics including: Where is investment poised to flow as limits on carbon dioxide take hold? How will the new carbon markets affect business? What will post-Kyoto climate agreements look like beyond 2012? Which low-carbon energy technologies will market forces pick? And, an interview with Environmental Defense president Fred Krupp will touch on his forthcoming book about the green tech revolution, Earth: The Sequel, to be published in March.

This Global Warming section kicks off Business and the Environment 2008, a series of special ad sections in BusinessWeek on major environmental issues.
