To: City of Irvine Public Works Department
Divest Irvine from Fossil Fuels
We are asking City of Irvine to immediately freeze any new investments in fossil fuels. Furthermore we demand that the city divest from direct owner ship and any commingled funds that include fossil fuel public equities and corporate bonds within 5 years
Why is this important?
Donald Trump has been sworn in as the president of the United States. Just days before the inauguration scientists released reports confirming that 2016 was the warmest year on record. We must fight climate change NOW, if not for our selves then for our children and grandchildren. We must take a stand and show our President that the people of this country care very deeply about this Earth and will fight with everything they have to protect. Change begins at the grassroots level. Lets start fighting!
