350.org launched a new fossil fuel divestment campaign this past fall, and in less than 4 months campaigns have sprung up on over 250 colleges and universities across the country. In the picture on the right, you can see Bill McKibben meeting with student leaders from around Minnesota. From big schools like the University of Minnesota to small liberal arts colleges like Gustavus Adolphus College, the idea of divestment is spreading like wildfire. Active campaigns now exist on 12 colleges and universities in Minnesota. To get plugged in, email Patty@MN350.org and she can refer you to the group leaders.
They need to get unplugged, not plugged in.
Dear Patty,You should show that you are serious about reducing fossil fuel consumption, by convincing everyone at Minnesota colleges to turn off their heat. That would help reduce the global warming problem you are suffering from.
