Harvard Faculty Calls for Divestment From Fossil Fuels

Harvard Fossil Fuel Divestment Smackdown: The Faculty vs. President Faust

A large and distinguished group of faculty at Harvard University released an open letter to President Drew Gilpin Faust and the Harvard Corporation. It calls, in striking terms, for divestment of the university’s endowment—the largest university endowment in the world—from fossil-fuel corporations. Perhaps most striking, it responds forcefully, and at times bluntly, to Faust’s public statements opposing divestment.

Kudos to Harvard faculty. Another step towards dealing with the climate change crisis.
