Fossil fuel divestment makes sense, what doesn’t is our university doing research into the environmental and economic consequences of continued fossil fuel extraction and use. It’s an important political movement and is an opportunity for our student body to make a stand for our future.

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.
