In this article, which he wrote just 5 months before the tech bubble burst in 1999, Warren Buffett compares the tech industry to the auto and aviation industries. Both were incredibly innovative, but very poor long-term investments.

"The key to investing is not assessing how much an industry is going to affect society, or how much it will grow, but rather determining the competitive advantage of any given company and, above all, the durability of that advantage. The products or services that have wide, sustainable moats around them are the ones that deliver rewards to investors."

Focus on the future productivity of the asset you are considering. If you don’t feel comfortable making a rough estimate of the asset’s future earnings, just forget it and move on.

No one has the ability to evaluate every investment possibility, but omniscience isn’t necessary; you only need to understand the actions you undertake.

Back in 2008, Shell released a scenario for the future called “Scramble” which predicted that the world would continue to balk at corrective-climate action, because “curbing the growth of energy demand—and hence economic growth—is simply too unpopular for politicians to undertake.”

Climate activists would grow increasingly shrill, but the general public would suffer “alarm fatigue.” Rich and poor nations would deadlock over who should do what as emissions spiraled past 550 parts per million. At that point the impacts of climate change would be too great to ignore—but it would be too late to do much about it.

Now that we as a society seem to be opting for a free-market free-for-all, Shell will be damned if it doesn’t join in and grab whatever it can. They’re a particularly illustrative example of how sharp-eyed businesspeople around the world are positioning themselves to thrive in a hotter future.
