Harvard Finds Fossil Fuels Indispensable
By Matthew DiLallo | October 13, 2013

At $32.7 billion, Harvard's endowment is among the largest in the country. The strong returns of the assets owned within the endowment are the main reason it has grown so large. In fact, over the past two decades Harvard's endowment has returned 12% per year, with a portion of those gains fueled by the fossil fuel-related investments it has held. Some, however, have suggested that those fossil fuel investments ought not be held, as the emissions these create are what's driving climate change that has so many worried about our future.

Balancing investing with personal ethics
In considering its options, Harvard has come to the conclusion that fossil fuels are indispensable to its portfolio. That's why it has rejected calls to jettison these investments. It sees boycotting a whole class of companies that we rely on every day as being an inconsistent notion. Further, the performance of the portfolio is critically important to the university, as it contributed almost a third of the school's operating budget last year. So to limit its opportunities to fulfill its mission would be counterintuitive.

The debate does bring up an ethical point, and one with which many investors wrestle. For example, many investors have completely rejected investing in "sin stocks" such as tobacco or alcohol producers, while others have taken a stand to own only the companies pursuing a more socially responsible mission. It really comes down to a personal decision, as it can be very difficult to separate your investing from your beliefs.

However, when it specifically comes to fossil fuel-related investments, there is a way to have your cake and eat it, too. For example, the concern with fossil fuels centers on the carbon dioxide that's emitted. The problem really boils down to the cost of capturing and storing all of that carbon. This is where fossil fuels can work in harmony to utilize the carbon to produce more energy.

German 'luxury bishop' flies to Rome for decision on his job

BERLIN (Reuters)- A German Catholic bishop under fire for huge cost overruns on a luxury residence and alleged lying under oath has flown to Rome to meet Vatican officials and possibly Pope Francis to decide if he can stay in office.

A spokesman confirmed on Sunday that Limburg Bishop Franz-Peter Tebartz-van Elst had departed but would not say when or how long he would be away. He declined to comment on media reports the prelate flew on a budget airline.

Tebartz-van Elst has caused a crisis in the German church for building a luxury residence and office complex at a time when the new pope is stressing humility and service to the poor.

"The bishop has made it clear that any decision about his service as a bishop lies in the hands of the Holy Father (Pope Francis)," said a statement issued by the diocese on Saturday.

French far-right wins bellwether by-election
AFP By Philippe Rater

Paris (AFP)- France's far-right Front National (FN) on Sunday won a bellwether by-election, cementing the party's status as a political force to be reckoned with by capitalising on economic gloom and fears of rising crime.

The eurosceptic and anti-immigration party founded by Jean-Marie Le Pen has for years been largely regarded as a pariah in French politics but it has gained significantly in strength and popularity in recent months.

The party's candidate Laurent Lopez garnered 53.9 percent of the vote in the second round of the by-election in the southeastern town of Brignoles, officials in the Var department said.

"I am very happy, it is an unambiguous score," said Lopez of his victory.

When the FN candidate made it into the run-off after the October 6 first round vote, it sent shockwaves across France and prompted calls by the ruling left for a "republican front" to stem the party's progress.

The left, which had no candidates in the Brignoles run-off, had urged voters to choose the centre-right UMP candidate Catherine Delzers, who Var officials said received 46.1 percent of the vote in Sunday's ballot.

Analysts have said that an FN win in Brignoles, whose mayor belongs to the Communist party, could be a significant barometer of the national mood.

In a dramatic boost for the party now led by the founder's daughter Marine Le Pen, a new survey said the FN was tipped to secure 24 percent of the domestic vote in next May's elections for the European Parliament.

The Ifop poll for the Nouvel Observateur magazine said the survey signalled a landmark shift.

"For the first time in a poll on voting intentions in an election of a national character, the FN is clearly ahead of both the (ruling) Socialist Party and the UMP," the main opposition party, Ifop said.

The Socialists were in third place for the European elections at 19 percent, with the UMP trailing behind the FN at 22 percent.

'France's main party'

Although Interior Minister Manuel Valls has taken a hard line on immigration, the Socialists are being increasingly perceived as unable to address mounting concerns over insecurity and crime as well as the economic malaise.

In a reflection of that sentiment, President Francois Hollande's popularity rating has plummeted to an all-time low of 29 percent.

France is grappling with record unemployment of more than three million, a huge budget deficit and slow economic growth.

French Finance Minister Pierre Moscovici on Sunday said it was vital for the ruling Socialists "to preserve and win back the support of the working classes."

I didn't come from a "well to do" family.
Nor did I. Middle class yes, and always self employed, as was my father and grandfather. I have always lived well, but will never be "wealthy". That may very well be a result of the choice making in my life, as money has never been my highest priority, only pursued because of necessity. Family is my priority, which is why I am so concerned for my children's future. To think we must accept mediocrity when we have always been a country that was driven to achieve saddens and angers me. I am a conservative, but in the sense that my allegiance is to the constitution, not to party, and to Austrian economics. The Keynesian theories have taken this country down a road to economic collapse, and both parties have been seduced by it. It's difficult to say just where the dust will settle, but it is my belief that if America strays any further from it's foundation, it will collapse, and there will be no defenders of liberty left to insure our way of life. Big government is a huge problem, and must be brought down to a manageable size or we will fail. I would like to see it back to consuming around 15%+- of our GDP as a correction, with congress taking it's constitutional roll more seriously then the crap we are witness to today.

Sounds like we have some things in common, so why fail to mention the $ 6 trillion that Obama has added if in fact you believe W was responsible for the trillions added under his administration. The last time I checked, the constitution places the appropriations in the hands of the House of Representatives. Not the President, although his signature is required, and certainly not the Fed. The major collapse of our budgeting process happened under the leadership, or lack there of, of the current crop of democrats. Started when Pelosi was in charge of the House, then shifted to a block everything strategy lead by Harry Reid in the Senate. There is no doubt that the republicans have been holding the country as victim, but the democrats are the ones plunging the knife in repeatedly and bleeding her out.

Kindly refrain from commenting on French,or German,or British,or, or, any politics, please.You reprint articles from the press, articles that please your racial and ultra right wing fantasies. Do you know who LePen is?He is retired, yes, and his right-of-LePen daughter who replaced him eclipses him in the hate anything not-white category. Le Front National is a purely fascist party, you probably don't know this , then maybe you do and it is what attracts you to it. They habitually break limbs and skulls come every election and have their own version of brown shirts. They are members of Msgr Lefebvre's (the late Msgr) breakaway church who provoked a schism with Rome some 45 odd years ago as it clung to its white and catholic unique kind of Aryan superiority. And to the Latin mass ritual.He founded the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX) and immediately condemned ecumenism and advocated exclusion.Lefebvre never denied the holocaust but then never condemned it outright.This is the base of the LePen movement.It got 1 seat, yes,but will never ever get more than token representation in the Fr Assembly.

FYO & before the "socialists" were elected,the "right" had been in power for 17 years.Not unlike GWB,THEY created whatever mess we now have in France.They've been in power a year or so now.Blame it on them,no problem

Before you write anything more, how about doing some research on Pope Francis when he was Head of the Jesuit Order in Buenos Aires during the "la Guerra sucia" and the "desaparecidos". You do know about the "dirty war", don't you, and the 40,000 killed and disappeared and the approving Catholic church? Or do you?
