More local governments considering divesting from fossil fuels

October 23, 2013

More and more local governments and education institutions are facing questions about the impacts of climate change, and the risk of having money invested in fossil fuel companies.

Mike McGinn, Mayor of Seattle, recently wrote a letter to the President of Harvard, outlining why Seattle decided to persue fossil-fuel divestment.

Marc Lee from the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives authored a research paper on Canada’s Carbon Liabilities, and the long-term risk of fossil fuel investment within our “carbon bubble.”

The Financial Post has a recent article on the matter as well.
