Global Warming and Preparing for the Big One

Also that Wednesday, Siemens announced the co-CEO of business software company SAP AG (SAP) will join Siemens' board of directors. Jim Hagemann Snabe, 47, who remains the top executive at SAP AG, has said he plans to leave that post next year for a seat on that company's board of directors.

Siemens' shares have been trading at a ridiculously low price-to-earning-to-growth, or PEG, ratio of just 0.30, and pays a 2.41% dividend, which represents only 43% of Siemens earnings. With a financial war chest of nearly $13 billion in total cash (as of June 30) the company could afford to raise the dividend.

If global warming increases, so will the company's probability of sales growth. Its engineering and infrastructure division will have ample opportunity to shore up threatened areas of many nations who will be directly impacted by rising sea levels and the possibility of destructive storm surges.

The following one-year chart reflects investors and analysts' confidence in the future of Siemens' earnings power and increasing returns on invested capital.

An American company that should find increasing sources of new business as a direct result of the potential catastrophic impact of global warming is Clean Harbors (CLH - Get Report).

As its name implies, it provides environmental, energy and industrial services in the United States, Puerto Rico, Canada and internationally. Super storms and storm surges lead to more contracts for CLH.

The company's Field Services segment provides various environmental cleanup services on customer sites or other locations on a scheduled or emergency response basis. These services include tank cleaning, decontamination, remediation and spill cleanup.

Clean Harbors has a lucrative division that's involved with used oil and oil products recycling, water filtration and water treatment services.

With its purchase late last year of competitor Safety-Kleen, CLH now has the largest used oil and hazardous waste-collection capabilities in North America. Its environmental services provide a comprehensive array of sustainable and cost-effective environmental solutions.

Last Monday, Clean Harbors announced that it had acquired Evergreen Oil out of bankruptcy through the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California.
