Urge Universities to Divest From Fossil Fuels

University Leaders

Sign the petition urging universities to divest from fossil fuels

The pressure to utilize renewable energy and sustainable practices instead of fossil fuels is growing in the U.S. — and a lot of that pressure is coming from younger generations and college students.

U.S. colleges and universities have been feeling the heat from students demanding that action be taken to address climate change. Their first demand? Asking colleges to sell their investments in the fossil fuel industry.

University leaders around the country have repeatedly stated that they understand the threat of climate change, and take it seriously. Many have even committed to climate change research. Now it’s time for them to act on what they speak. To spend billions of dollars of taxpayer and tuition money to research climate change, only to invest in an industry that heavily contributes to it is counterproductive and dangerous.
