Divest Broward County From Fossil Fuels

Divest Broward County From Fossil Fuels

Divest Broward County's holdings from fossil fuels within 5 years.

Why is this important?

We can no longer be complicit in big oil's reckless pursuit of profit. Tar sands and oil spills are destroying our environment, polluting our ground water and endangering our lives. The BP oil spill and the pipeline incident that dumped 1,000 barrels of oil into Yellowstone River are just two recent examples of big oil's disregard for safety and the environment. We must free ourselves from the downward spiral of big oil.

How it will be delivered

We will be delivering these to the Broward County Commissioners in person.

Reasons for signing

  • Divesting from fossil fuels is a no-brainer for an area so susceptible to rising seas due to climate change.
  • The group 350 South Florida supports all actions in our region. Let's get all counties involved!
  • Excluding the potential new found oil because of arctic melting, we have reached peak oil, so new sources and technologies need to be developed if we are to live in a county that is not inundated with rising sea levels because of climate change caused by CO2 increases in the atmosphere.
