Human Waste May Help Address Global Fertilizer Shortage

For the past couple of years, the world has been gripped by a fertilizer shortage that has impacted food production across several continents and significantly increased fears of food insecurity. The fertilizer shortage worsened in early 2022 when Russia invaded Ukraine and disrupted crucial shipments of fertilizer.

Furthermore, a long-term and sustained green-energy drive could halt global warming and even undo some of the damage caused by burning dirty fossil fuels for centuries. With these goals in mind, the United States is planning on investing billions of dollars into researching, developing…

Four Compelling Reasons to Invest in Precious Metals

Investing in precious metals can seem like a pointless endeavor as gold and silver don’t generate interest and will not grow investments in any way. This is contrary to other asset classes that generate interest and dividends, allowing investors to steadily grow their investments and earn a passive income. Such asset classes can be quite lucrative for investors, especially as the U.S. Federal Reserve has raised benchmark interest rates for several consecutive months and increased the potential earnings investors could earn from certain holdings. So why would an investor who is new to the precious metals market invest their hard-earned…

What You Should Know About Adding Precious Metals to Your Investment Portfolio

The demand for precious metals has increased greatly these last few years. Precious metals such as silver and gold are great for introducing a bit of stability into your portfolio, particularly if you’re keen on diversifying it.
