Divest and Reinvest
What is “divestment”? You can think of it like “un-investment.” Or more significantly, investing your money in something else. In this case, we’re talking about divestment from fossil fuels. Coupled with reinvestment in clean energy and post-carbon infrastructure.
Peter Rood had a HUGE victory in December, when he took a Divestment proposal to the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles. The resolution was passed by majority vote. Now comes implementation, and helping lots of organizations understand WHAT TO DO now that they’ve voted to do it.
If you would like to help Peter with some internet research in support of this topic, please contact him.
