REPORT: Fossil Fuel Divestment Doubles in Size as Institutions Representing $5 Trillion Commit to Divest

GLOBAL - The global movement to divest from fossil fuels has doubled in size since September 2015, according to the third annual Global Fossil Fuel Divestment and Clean Energy Investment Movement report from Arabella Advisors. The report, released today by the Divest-Invest network, comes exactly one year after world governments reached the Paris agreement on climate change.

And the next step; at least here in the U.S., is to put a stop to the government subsidies that use our taxes to support and enrich these corporations. Put a stop to pipeline subsidies and their use of Eminent Domain. Our government should not be supporting corporations with 'our' tax dollars. We should not be giving tax incentives or tax breaks to those who hide their profits and avoid paying their fair share of taxes to support this Nation, yet expect to enjoy all its benefits and protections. With the billions in profits made each year they can surely afford to support themselves.
Shout out people. If not now, then when?
