University students calling for a divestment from fossil fuel industry

The Current

It is being called the biggest student movement in the U.S. in years. Students at 192 university campuses across North America want their schools to step up on the issue of climate change by divesting what would be millions-of-dollars worth of endowments from the fossil fuel industry. Their campaign parallels the actions of universities back in the 80's when they used the same tactic to fight apartheid in South Africa. The founder of 350-dot-org, Bill McKibben will Do The Math on the campaign he's encouraging.
