Divest Louisville From Fossil Fuels

Reason for signing

  • Divesting from owning stocks of fossil fuel companies is one of the few concrete steps we can take to increase attention to the problem of global warming. When the world wakes up to the crisis being created by burning fossil fuels, then fossil fuel stocks will have "stranded assets" and the value of those stocks will plummet. Therefore, continuing to hold such stocks is bad investing in addition to being morally wrong.
