Innovative research in 2009 by climate scientists asked the question, ‘How much carbon can we still burn and have a reasonable chance of staying below 2 degrees?’. The answer was, not much more.
And further work has calculated there are already enough fossil fuel reserves identified to cook the planet 5 times over! So the concept of unburnable carbon and fossil fuel divestment was born. As Bill McKibben says
“If it’s wrong to wreck the climate, then surely it’s wrong to profit from that wreckage”
So we’re co-hosting a Divestment forum to ask – What can Divestment offer our Climate, Communities and Economy?
Please join us on Friday the 6th of December to hear from a diverse range of speakers on what divestment is, why we need it and how you can take part.
