Keep It In The Ground

First The Guardian Media Group pulled out of fossil fuels, and now they have started an initiative to encourage other organizations to move toward fossil fuel divestment. Their Keep it in the Ground campaign, done in collaboration with, makes a simple argument:

"Fossil fuel companies cannot go on prospecting for more coal, oil and gas reserves when the proven reserves already owned by governments and corporations are three to five times higher than we can safely burn without risking dangerous climate change".

Gulp. Hard to argue with this. And it is way past time. Go here to sign the petition to urge two of the world's biggest charitable funds, i.e. Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and The Wellcome Trust, to move their money out of fossil fuels. And have a nice weekend.
