[Video] What is fossil fuel divestment and why does it matter?

Excellent 2.5 min video – http://gu.com/p/46zqd/stw

“Unless there is political pressure to change, nothing will change.”

Educators Climate Alliance couldn’t agree more. Real political pressure comes from gutsy acts that show we are willing to ‘put our money where our mouth is.’ That is why the ECA is urging bold action such as disinvestment – so that we educators can say honestly that we INVEST in kids’ futures.

p.s. Please consider sharing our blog/posts and petition on your social media platform or share with friends and colleagues via email. If we are to affect change as quickly as is necessary, we really need everyone to become involved. All of us have a stake in our pensions and care about a planet that is livable in the future. The urgency is only going to become more and more apparent. No one is coming to save us. The power is within ourselves – each individual – to change the current system. We hope you can join the growing chorus!
