Why must our unis divest from fossil fuels?

Climate change is happening now.

The business model of the fossil fuel industry is in no way compatible with a safe climate that young people’s future relies on. To have any chance of staying below the internationally agreed upon 1.5 degree threshold of warming, we can’t dig up any new fossil fuels. This means no new coal mines, pipelines or gas wells, none at all.

Our governments are captured by the fossil fuel industry lobby and fail to take any necessary action on climate change. Now more than ever our universities need to show leadership and acknowledge the damage fossil fuels cause.

They must break ties with this rogue industry if we are going to embrace a future that is clean, socially just and economically fair.
