With University's Carbon Footprint Exposed, Harvard's 'Heat Week' Gets Hotter

Deirdre Fulton, staff writer

Harvard Heat Week, five days of rallies and civil disobedience aimed at pressuring Harvard to pull its investments from the coal, oil, and gas industries, began Sunday and will run through Friday.
