Largest Public University Yet Dumps Coal

The University of Washington (UW) will divest roughly $2 million of its endowment from coal companies, citing "the seriousness of the climate change problem," after a vote by the school's board of regents Thursday night.

"Our action today is the latest element of the University's long-term commitment to improving the environment through world-class research and state-of-the-art sustainability practices," board chair Bill Ayer said in a statement.


Coal is far and away the most polluting energy source we have. The entire nation should divest from coal, and invest in distributed renewables.


Time for The Pennsylvania State University ( Penn State) to do the same. Are you listening BOT?? No because half of you are in the pockets of Big Coal…
