To: Loudoun County

Identify any holdings of Loudoun County in fossil fuels and divest within 2 years.

Why is this important?

The fossil fuel industry spends investments on research to extract more fossil fuels, when they really need to stay in the ground if we are going to avoid catastrophic climate change. In addition, they spend lots of that money on influencing politicians to support their subsidies and priorities. It's time to stop giving them our tax dollars to support their dirty work. Finally, it is an important risk management strategy to get our county's investments out of the carbon bubble.
