• Divest Worcester, MA From Fossil Fuels
    We have a responsibility as stewards of our natural resources to protect them and preserve them for our future generations. Up until this generation we weren't aware of the harm we were visiting on the ecological environs. Now that we know, it's time to correct our adverse impact and pursue with fervor alternative energy sources that work with nature, not against nature and mankind.

  • Divest Benton County from Fossil Fuels
    For the last century we've been burning fossil fuels at a much faster rate than the planet produced them. Now that the easy half is gone, the remaining sources will be more difficult to extract and much messier. In the name of quick profits, big petroleum corporations have driven us into a serious pollution problem. Maybe we should remember how to live more like humans have historically lived and leave whatever fossil fuels remain for our great-grandchildren. The corporations won't back off until we insist.

  • Divest Hawaii From Fossil Fuels
    We're all part of institutions that ought to be looking out for the public good, from city and state governments to religious institutions to other kinds of charities and non-profits. Most of these institutions invest money in stocks and bonds, and have a responsibility to divest from an industry that’s destroying our future, and reinvest in solutions to climate change. Even as extreme weather events like Hurricane Sandy, floods, droughts and fires threaten to overwhelm local budgets, federal inaction to solve this crisis is all but stalled. We have the solutions, but we won’t see any political progress on the issue until we can weaken the power of the fossil fuel industry. The bottom line is this: divestment is the only moral choice for institutions that care about the planet and its residents. Solving the climate crisis is the only practical choice for governments that care about their solvency. We need to convert to green energy to save the islands and the planet now. Let's stop supporting the large oil and utility corporations.

  • Divest the UUFRC from Fossil Fuels!
    Our Fellowship has a responsibility to divest from an industry that’s destroying our future, and reinvest in solutions to climate change. We can not count on the federal government, even as extreme weather events like Hurricane Sandy and the 2012 droughts in the Midwest overwhelm local budgets. We have the solutions, but we won’t see any political progress on the issue until we can weaken the power of the fossil fuel industry. The bottom line is this: divestment is the only moral choice for religious organizations that care about our Earth and the well being of the interconnected web of life of which we are all a part. It's time to divest from fossil fuels now!
