I'm also a realist so investigating new alternative power sources sounds good and so do health oriented products. (Everyone grows old and it would be nice to do so within a clean environment...that includes cheap electricity!) Obviously, I want to make some money, but I do have some lines I'm not willing to cross. Are there funds/companies/investments that have scruples/values that might include fair trade/humanity concerns?I'm sorry...so many many questions. Are there other publications/books/boards I should be reading? I suspect that if you start weeding out investments by standards, and the standards become too broad, your actual pool of stocks will become too small for a mutual fund family to make investments. If you are talking scruples, where do you draw the line on the actions of Whole Foods Markets CEO bashing a competitor while quietly trying to acquire that same company? I am sure there are plenty of companies that have wrapped the term "Green" around themselves just to make themselves more appealing to investors.OTOH, there is an investing sector called socially responsible investing. Below are two links that are obtained via doing a Google query on "Socially responsible investing" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socially_responsible_investinghttp://www.socialfunds.com/ Hohum
