• Go Fossil Free! NKU
    Climate change is accelerating. We are witnessing the increasing impacts of a warming planet more and more consistently; in this last year alone our country experienced record-breaking heat, droughts, and hurricanes, which impacted hundreds of thousands of people and cost our country hundreds of billions of dollars. Hurricane Sandy alone caused $50 billion in damages. Experts agree that global warming caused by humans burning fossil fuels will continue to accelerate and intensify these tragic climate disasters. The scientific consensus is clear and overwhelming; we cannot safely burn even half of global fossil-fuel reserves without dangerously warming the planet for several thousand years.

    Climate change is accelerating. We are witnessing the increasing impacts of a warming planet more and more consistently; in the past few years our country experienced record-breaking heat, droughts, and hurricanes, which impacted hundreds of thousands of people and cost our country hundreds of billions of dollars. Experts agree that global warming caused by humans burning fossil fuels will continue to accelerate and intensify these tragic climate disasters. The scientific consensus is clear and overwhelming; we cannot safely burn even half of global fossil-fuel reserves without dangerously warming the planet for several thousand years.

  • DIVEST ALL U of WISCONSIN Universities!
    Climate change is accelerating. On top of the increasingly severe weather patterns and seasons, we see a very disproportionate effect on deindustrialized rural communities, indigenous communities, and communities of low-income housing. These communities experience significant health risks due to the pollution of the fossil fuel industry. Social class, race, and the community you live in should not affect whether you have clean water to drink and air to breathe. The time to divest for the planet and for the people is now.

  • בצלאל מפסיקה להשקיע בזיהום כדור הארץ
    שינויי האקלים הולכים ומאיצים. אנו עדים להשפעות ההולכות וגדלות של התחממות הכוכב באופן עקבי יותר ויותר; רק בשנה האחרונה נרשמו בישראל עומסי חום, שרב ושריפות באזור מודיעין, בשומרון, בוואדי ערה, בעמק חפר בנוף הגליל ובמקומות אחרים שהשפיעו על מאות ואלפי אנשים ועלו למדינה ולאזרחים הון עתק ואף גבו חיי אדם. מומחים מסכימים כי התחממות כדור הארץ הנגרמת על ידי שריפת דלקים מאובנים תמשיך להאיץ ולהעצים את אסונות האקלים הטרגיים הללו. הקונצנזוס המדעי ברור ומכריע; איננו יכולים לשרוף אפילו מחצית ממאגרי הדלקים המאובנים העולמיים מבלי לחמם את כדור הארץ באופן מסוכן למשך כמה אלפי שנים ובכך להביא לקץ המין האנושי. חתימתכם על העצומה תפעיל לחץ על החשב הכללי של האקדמיה להפסיק את ההשקעות הפיננסיות של המוסד בתהליך המסוכן הזה, ובכך תעזור לבלום את פליטת גזי החממה וההתחממות הגלובלית להם אחראית האקדמיה לאמנות ועיצוב בצלאל.

  • University of Nebraska - Divest from Fossil Fuels!
    Climate change is one of the most imperative issues of this generation. The Natural Resources Defense Council contends that climate change will cost nearly $1.9 trillion annually if forced to go unchecked. This is an imperative issue that has led to loss of life and property all around the world, including here in Nebraska. In 2019, large floods led to the loss of three lives and threatened the livelihoods of thousands. The total cost of these floods were nearly $3 billion dollars, dealing a large blow to our state. As the climate crisis continues, it is more important than ever that the University takes an active role in helping prevent the issue. Climate change continues to lead to extreme weather events and cause disruption in too many lives. The University of Nebraska should follow the lead of the Association of Big Ten Students and divest from fossil fuels.

  • Divest Uni of Brighton from Fossil Fuels (DUB)
    Climate change is accelerating. We are witnessing the increasing impacts of a warming planet more and more consistently. Brighton is portrayed as a green haven as the only area with a green constituency, however our University currently has no action towards divesting in fossil fuels. On the 17th of January 2020 the University of Brighton declared a climate emergency. They claimed that they are committed to sustainability having already 'delivered a 34% reduction in its carbon footprint since 2010'. Even so they are ignoring the fact that they still invest in fossil fuels which we find highly hypocritical as you cannot declare a climate emergency and still be funding fossil fuels. Experts agree that global warming caused by humans burning fossil fuels will continue to accelerate and intensify these tragic climate disasters. The scientific consensus is clear and overwhelming; we cannot safely burn even half of global fossil-fuel reserves without dangerously warming the planet for several thousand years.

  • Divest Strathclyde University
    The University of Strathclyde prides itself of being 'the place of useful learning' - preparing its students for long and successful careers. Yet by holding £3.8m of investment in fossil fuel exploitation companies our University is betting against our future. We know that about two-thirds of known fossil fuel reserves cannot be burnt if we are to avoid catastrophic climate change. These investments are either doomed, or we are. Join us in calling on the University to funnel its funds towards the climate solution.
