Large multinational corporations are pursuing profits to excess. We must divest our holdings in the largest Military, Insurance, Finance, Energy, and Chemicals (MIFEC), and we must stop purchasing their products.
They are destroying the earth for profit.
Sign the Guardian’s Climate Change Petition.
“Actor Tilda Swinton and chef Yotam Ottolenghi are among 100,000 people who have supported the campaign calling for the Wellcome Trust and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to divest from fossil fuels.
“The campaign asks the world’s two largest charitable foundations to divest from the top 200 oil, gas and coal companies within five years and to immediately freeze any new investments. It was launched by Guardian editor-in-chief Alan Rusbridger in partnership with the global climate movement 350.org.
GR: Join in the world war of our time. Become one of Earth’s Defenders against human greed; sign the petition and find more ways to help.
Join us in urging the world’s two biggest charitable funds to move their money out of fossil fuels.
Evidence shows that proven fossil fuel reserves are more than three times higher than we can afford to burn in order to stay below the generally agreed threshold for dangerous climate change. Fossil fuel companies are currently banking on extracting these reserves and selling them – and are actively prospecting for more. By supporting these companies, investors not only continue to fund unsustainable business models that are bound to make climate change worse, but they also risk their financial assets becoming worthless if international agreements on climate change are met.
“Professors call on university to recognise urgency of climate change and divest from all oil, coal and gas companies.
“The fossil-fuel divestment campaign has grown rapidly over the past few years, driven by the deepening awareness that most of the world’s coal, oil and gas reserves must stay in the ground to avoid catastrophic climate change. According to the world’s leading climate scientists, those safety limits could be breached within 30 years if the world goes on burning fossil fuels at the current rate” Source: www.theguardian.com.
