Divest Museum of Science and Industry from fossil fuels within 5 years
Why is this important?
The Museum earns investment income from companies that profit from the extraction of fossil fuels, whose role in energy production is a major contributor to global warming. This undermines public confidence in the sincerity and validity of the Museum's programs for transmitting scientific knowledge. The other major Chicago science museum, the Field Museum, announced on November 13, 2015 that it had divested from fossil fuels some time ago. It is long past time for the Museum of Science and Industry to do so as well.
