I support the Fossil Free campaign because climate change is one of the gravest problems facing our generation. Divestment from companies who are contributing towards this phenomenon is a way of demonstrating that the actions of these companies are no longer acceptable and through this we can challenge their behaviour and promote a better future.
Fossil fuel companies are ignoring the mountain of scientific evidence and assuming they can stick with business as usual. Instead of helping us transition to a sustainable energy system, they’re exploring, extracting and lobbying for more fossil fuels. Oxford divesting is one way of telling the fossil fuel companies, politicians and financial markets that this has got to stop.
