"Divesting from fossil fuel companies carries very low risk to the portfolio and hedges against the foreseeable decline in the fossil fuel industry known as the “Carbon Bubble”. If we are to limit temperature rise to 2oC, which is the internationally accepted limit on temperature rise, 60 to 80% of fossil fuel reserves cannot be extracted and burned for profit2. These are then are considered stranded assets, which severely inflates the value of the companies’ stock. Hence, long-term investments in the fossil fuel industry will likely prove to be bad investments.

Efforts to transition away from fossil fuels have been hindered by the industry’s money, political influence, and tacit acceptance from institutions like ours. This is where University of Delaware can play a role by publicly ending its investments in fossil fuels. A mass divestment movement can both harm these corporations’ bottom lines, and delegitimize them in the court of public opinion, aiding the transition to a sustainable future. University of Delaware can truly “Dare to be First” by being the first university among the top 100 universities with the largest endowment to divest from fossil fuels. In doing so, it would provide a strong impetus to the growing movement of divestment, which currently comprises of 6 colleges and universities, 18 cities, and numerous other institutions."

Folks - See the denier posts? They are all emotional.

The thread says "global warming undeniable." This fact is not a mere feeling but truly established by long years of scientific work.

We have our work cut out for us. Just do it, folks.

Thanks for illustrating for the 8734th time that your beef with the science is purely economic, political, and ideological.

"most climate scientists and environmental economists agree"

Most?

Let me guess... 97%.

Mothra has yet to ever post anything both relevant and substantive. He's just wasting electrons, making a fool of himself, and illustrating the nature of denial.

What a phony. Your buddy litesong posts mounds of gibberish but you don't lambast him for that.

I know, I know... he's a useful idiot for the 'cause', so he's tolerated.

Do run along and be a jackass elsewhere.

"With global warming you don't see a gradual warming from one year to the next. It's more like a staircase. You trot along with nothing much happening for 10 years and then suddenly you have a jump and things never go back to the previous level again."[Trenberth]
