Summary

Read our one page condensed plan.

Why Fossil Fuel?  Why Divestment?  Why Now?  We explain our strategy.

More

Creating  a  paradigm  shift  in  how  we  view  fossil  fuels  by  raising  awareness  of  their  public  health  and  human rights  impacts.

Fossil fuel emissions are the largest contributor to atmospheric CO2, which drives climate change. If there is any hope of halting rising global temperatures, sea level rise and biodiversity loss, we must act NOW and target the primary cause of climate change – our burning of fossil fuels. There is no time to waste. If our trajectory doesn’t change, tipping points will be realized and irreversible catastrophic change will result.

“If your college’s endowment portfolio has fossil-fuel stock, then your educations are being subsidized by investments that guarantee you won’t have much of a planet on which to make use of your degree.” (Bill McKibben)

This is OUR chance to help. This is OUR opportunity to seize. This is OUR time to REFUEL OUR FUTURE.
