On the heels of yesterday’s historic climate march (which according to some estimates drew nearly 400,000 people), today the Rockefeller Brothers Fund announced its new fossil fuel divestment campaign. Divestment is gaining serious momentum as a strategy to combat major social problems, most notably in apartheid Israel/Palestine. The Rockefeller Fund has joined other organizations (who collectively own more than $50 billion in assets) in its efforts, opting instead to invest in clean, renewable energy. It follows in the footsteps of other institutions like Stanford University who has also committed to fossil fuel divestment. See the full story at Democracy Now.
