You can’t make this stuff up ….
According to this article, college students are rising up to encourage their universities from divesting in fossil fuels companies, because of climate change problem.
When I was in college, there was an effort among college organizations for their universities to divest from companies who did business in South Africa.
So, in my opinion, what these students ought to be protesting for is (at the least) a carbon tax, to incentivize R&D into non-C energy. Better yet (IMO) is a serious federal research program — $10-20 billion/yr — into technologies like nuclear fusion and air capture and carbon sequestration. Continued tax breaks for solar and wind. Credits for home-based solar panels. Drive up the demand for solar panels, and (unexpectedly) you will help drive down the price.
We can’t stop using energy, and that’s the difference from South Africa
