Fossil fuels are a threat to Earth, a beautiful land that we share with so many other creatures. From strip mining to burning, they affect the environment negatively. According to "The Hidden Costs of Fossil Fuels" published by the Union of Concerned Scientists, hydraulic fracturing requires 3 to 6 million gallons of water per well, 15,000 to 60,000 gallons of mostly undisclosed chemicals, and of the 353 chemicals known chemicals, 25% "cause cancer or other mutations, and about half could severely damage neurological, cardiovascular, endocrine, and immune systens." If these chemicals can affect us this way, think of what it does to the plants, the animals, the biology of every living organism and nonliving entity in that area. End the needless killing of our planet and stop supporting fossil fuels! Join the #revolution ! Don't let humankind destroy our world! https://nam01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ucsusa.org%2Fclean-energy%2Fcoal-and-other-fossil-fuels%2Fhidden-cost-of-fossils&data=02%7C01%7Ccdb87%40drexel.edu%7Cda6525a487ec4aa25ebb08d6e08be450%7C3664e6fa47bd45a696708c4f080f8ca6%7C0%7C0%7C636943288767974797&sdata=ESMJyfwvX9PjgTdhSV3ChsID%2FX5pvaFkqP1nwqDQNRQ%3D&reserved=0 #climatechange #fossilfree #fossilfreedrexel #fossilfuels #divest #divestment #environment #environmentalism #earth

At 3am this morning @Greenpeace activists craned in 5 large and very heavy containers outside each of the 5 entrances to the BP HQ in London to shut the entire building down. But these containers are special - as each container has two activists inside with a portaloo, a week’s worth of food and water and activities to keep the activists interested. Each of these containers weigh several tonnes and have been designed so police cannot attempt to remove them with hurting the occupants inside and also cannot attempt to cut/drill inside them. Other activists abseiled down the sides of the BP HQ to drop banners and sat on top of the containers. @Greenpeace is hoping to keep the building shut all week if possible and all the activists inside the sealed containers are willing to stay in them for this time. This was planned ahead of BP’s AGM tomorrow and Greenpeace will be holding a large demonstration outside the HQ in solidarity with the activists still in the crates. As of this post 4 people have been arrested so far. — Photos via @greenpeace #Justice4Earth #JusticeForEarth #Greenpeace #ExtinctionRebellion #Activism #EnvironmentalActivism #LockOn #BP #BPPLC #Shell #FossilFuels #RenewableEnergy #divestment

LUNCHTIME LOBBYING 🌱A huge amount of public money is invested in Fossil Fuel companies. 🌱If Parliament is truly committed to achieving net-zero emissions by 2050, it is important that they start to divest from FF companies as soon as possible. 🌱This Wednesday will see a parliamentary debate on the ethical and financial risks posed by government investment in FF companies. It is interesting timing ahead of the European Elections the next day but still another good opportunity to lobby your MP on this important issue. 🌱350.org makes is super quick and easy by offering a template tweet or email on their website which I’ve included a link to in my bio. #greenliving #sustainableliving #climatechange #divestment #thereisnoplanetb

Heidelberg wird Fossil Free ✌️💚💥⠀ ⠀ Die Stadt Heidelberg hat sich verpflichtet den Forderungskatalog der Fossil Free Bewegung umzusetzen und ist damit Fossil Free Kommune. Die Grünen werten es als großen Erfolg für Klimaschutz und Menschenrechte, dass der Gemeinderat am 9. Mai für ihren Antrag dazu gestimmt hat.⠀ „Der Heidelberger Gemeinderat und die Stadtverwaltung setzen sich nun konsequent für Menschenrechte und Klimaschutz ein und zwar auch bei den Finanzen. Uns war es wichtig, dass die Finanzverwaltung der Stadt Heidelberg ein konkretes Konzept mit Anlage, Kredit und Investitionsrichtlinien für die Stadt Heidelberg in Bezug auf nachfolgende Rahmenbedingungen vorlegt. Die Richtlinien gelten dann auch für städtische Beteiligungen und Konzerntöchter. Weiterhin nutzt die Stadt ihren Einfluss auf alle Unternehmen, bei denen der Oberbürgermeister oder die Gemeinderäte im Aufsichtsrat vertreten sind. Es spielt durchaus eine Rolle, was eine Stadt mit ihrem Geld macht. Hier nachhaltig zu handeln ist ein weiterer Schritt zu einem wirkungsvollen Klimaschutz und für eine gerechtere Welt.“⠀ In Anbetracht der bekannten finanzökonomischen Risiken der Kohlenstoffblase und der untragbaren Folgen für das Erdsystem unterlässt die Stadt nun jedwede neuen Investitionen in fossile Energien. Weiterhin zieht sie bestehende Investitionen innerhalb von fünf Jahren aus den entsprechenden Industrien heraus und legt sie, gemeinsam mit allen neuen Investitionen, basierend auf den hier aufgeführten Nachhaltigkeitskriterien an.⠀ ⠀ #heidelberger #heidelbergerschloss #cityofheidelberg #heidelberggermany #heidelbergnow #igersheidelberg #visitheidelberg #heidelbergaltstadt #heidelbergcastle #heidelberglife #heidelbergram #heidelbergcity #heidelberg #germany #felixgraedler #grüne #heidelbergrüner #stadtrat #meinestimmezählt #kommunalwahl #fossilfree #divestment

Moving your money from one of the big banks to an ethical bank is one of the easiest ways to make a bigger difference in terms of your impact on the world (both the environment and people).💰 . The big banks all fund the oil and gas industry, along with other polluting industries, not to mention the human rights issues caused by profit-hungry corporations. . I’ve had my eye on @triodosuk for a few years but they only offered savings accounts. I’m so pleased that they now offer current accounts. 😀 . See pic 2 for their mission statement. . This is #notanad - I’m not affiliated with Triodos in any way, I simply like what they do and have chosen to switch to them for my everyday banking needs. Check them out and make the switch if you like what you see! 💚

In this version of the four directions, you look west in introspection and see the scales of #EconomicJustice : how can you balance your #expenses and #revenues while keeping your heart as light as a #feather ? Earn your feathers, my dear friends! You look south for #innovation , seeing the #SocialEnterprise you will elevate, symbolized by a flying saucer. Your ship ascends on three pillars of light, 1. your spiritual responsibility to amplify love as the world’s most natural currency and radiate #RadicalSelfLove , beloved community, and true love for #MotherNature , who's now on #strike , 2. your plan for transparent #divestment from toxic masculinity, white supremacy, and fossil energy, and 3. your formal legal status like #SolidarityCooperative or limited liability corporation or #BCorp. You look east for illumination, seeing a triple moon symbol that celebrates femininity as full at all stages of a woman’s life. Here, you mix economic currencies such as #seedsaving to #akoin to cold hard cash to ensure a full moon of natural #abundance. In the north is wisdom, your North Star. Mine is #HarrietTubman , spy, #rebel , leader, #entrepreneur of pies to prevent accusations of corruption. Who’s yours? What do they say? Do you hear their call to #love ?

JA zu Divestment an der BOKU - raus aus Kohle, Öl & Gas! 🌻 Unterstütze jetzt unsere Petition! Nachhaltigkeit wird an der BOKU nach außen hin immer großgeschrieben, aber so „Grün“, wie sich die BOKU gerne präsentiert, ist sie leider gar nicht. Während viele Universitäten auf der ganzen Welt auf Druck von Studierenden bereits all ihre Uni-Gelder aus fossilen Anlagen abgezogen haben, bleibt die Veranlagung der Uni-Finanzen der BOKU weiterhin undurchsichtig und klimaschädlich. Das wollen wir ändern!

Huge green wall, The Oval cricket ground, London. Softens the line of a big building, creates a vertical forest providing a great habitat for bugs and birds, soaks up some of that carbon dioxide AND looks great. I guess it partly atones for the fact that the Oval is sponsored by a car manufacturer... Oops 🥴☹️😳😱. A little reminder that we should all moving away from anything that supports, invests in or uses fossil fuels, and that includes you, The Oval. It’s called divestment. As our great leader Greta T says: Stop calling this climate change. It’s a CLIMATE EMERGENCY, so act like it is! #greenwall #biodiversity #verticalforest #greeninglondon #kiaoval #ovalcricket #vauxhall #gretathunberg #planttrees #emissions #carbondioxide #cleanair #divestment #fossilfuels #stopinvestingincars #protectnature #environmentalist #ecosystem #nature #urbanwildlife #sunnyday

Neben dem Ausrufen des Klimanotstands hat Heidelberg gestern auch einen wichtigen Schritt in Richtung #fossilfree gemacht. Der Gemeinderat hat den Antrag der @gruene.hd angenommen !! 🎉😍🌻 Damit verpflichtet sich die Stadt Heidelberg, nicht mehr in den Abbau und Energieerzeugung aus fossilen Brennstoffen wie Kohle zu investieren. Zudem sind auch Beteiligungen an Kinderarbeit, Militär- und Atomwaffen ausgeschlossen. Der Antrag ist ein Erfolg für den Klimaschutz und zeigt wie wichtig es ist, dass wir für unsere Zukunft auf die Straßen gehen 💪🏻💚 #divestment #climatejustice #now #unserezukunft #heidelbergrüner #wechangeheidelberg

“Governments around the world are still pumping $540bn into the fossil fuels industry every year. When you take into account factors like the health costs of fossil fuels – almost always covered by governments – this skyrockets to $5.3tn a year! This dwarfs the $120bn spent on renewables. What does this tell us? That we need a rapid moral and cultural shift away from fossil fuels. We have to aggressively challenge the immense cultural authority and privileged political position of fossil fuels. Divestment is the most effective way of doing that.” ⠀⠀ Source: Cambridge University Zero Carbon Society ⠀⠀ Link: http://zerocarbonsoc.soc.srcf.net/?page_id=3776 ⠀⠀ #divest #divestment #cambridge #university #fossilfools #fossilfuels #changethesystem #revolution #quote

So „Grün“, wie sich die BOKU gerne präsentiert, ist sie leider nicht. Als einen von vielen notwendigen Schritten wollen wir darum die Divestment-Bewegung auf die BOKU holen. 🌻 Das heißt: Uni-Geld raus aus Kohle, Öl & Gas! Einige Unis wie Edinburgh, Göttingen, Glasgow oder Stockholm sind hier bereits mit gutem Beispiel vorangegangen und haben auf Druck von Studierenden ein klares Bekenntnis abgegeben und ihr Geld aus fossilen Anleihen, Aktien und Konten abgezogen. Auch wir wollen eine saubere Uni – frei von klimaschädlicher Kohle! #bagruLiebe #lautstarkGRAS #bagru #gras #boku #grüne #green #gruen #divest #divestment #bokuvienna #bokuwien #climate #klima #umwelt #öko #oeh #öh #oeh19 #währing #döbling #basisgruppe #wien #vienna

"At a conference about globalism and the art world at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, participants circulated a statement calling on the institution and Larry Fink, one of its trustees and the CEO of the investment firm BlackRock, to divest from companies involved in private prisons. . "Signed by academics, artists, curators, and activists, the statement highlighted BlackRock’s investments in GEO Group and CoreCivic, which operate private prisons. It also noted MoMA’s use of Fidelity Investments, which owns stock in private prison companies, to manage its pension funds. — "The reading of today’s statement follows a petition circulated by Art Space Sanctuary in March that urged Fink and MoMA to divest. That same month, Art Space Sanctuary and the group CODEPINK, along with some members of the Decolonize This Place, staged an action at MoMA’s annual David Rockefeller Awards lunch. The honoree at the event was Brian Moynihan, the CEO of Bank of America, who protesters alleged was also an investor in private prisons." — #ArtSpaceSanctuary #NoMoreArtWashing #moma #momadivest #instaart #artforgood #DecommercializeJustice #peopleoverprofit #socialjustice #criminaljustice #racialjustice #massincarceration #immigrantjustice #prisonprofiteers #divestment #prisondivestment #blackrock #banks #finance #artactivism

‘I’m giving up’ Half a decade ago I dropped out of college one class shy of graduation because I knew I couldn’t live with that degree earned with long hours in the library but paid for with blood money. Today, I’m giving up all remaining benefits that I received in exchange for serving the American empire for over half a decade over a decade ago because I can no longer accept my share of the treasure but I take no pleasure in cutting up my ID card and I cry thinking about all the hard work, all the training and all the time spent using that training and all the things that I could have done instead. I can’t remain well fed with access to a hospital bed while refugees starve and the very same government I turn to for care uses countless new recruits to keep carving the earth, blissfully unaware.

Yesterday I held a hearing in Albany on #divestment of the state pension fund from fossil fuel producers. Divesting the fund will protect workers and retirees from the rapid loss of value that fossil fuel companies will suffer in the coming energy transition. It will also send a powerful message that is it no longer acceptable to invest in a business model that puts our entire planet at risk. #divestny

NEW REPORT! We are so thrilled to share the 2019 update of our flagship report, The Prison Industrial Complex: Mapping Private Sector Players. . First published last year, this one-of-a-kind report exposes the corporations that profit off our nation’s carceral crisis and the marginalized communities it’s ravaged. It serves as the largest lens into the prison industrial complex ever published, and this year, we added more than 800 corporations to bring the report total to over 3,900 corporations across 12 sectors and their investors. . In our 2019 update, we expanded geographic coverage with the addition of California's correctional vendors, added new industries including major bail bonds agencies and surety companies, flagged involvement in immigration detention and deportation, added corporate contributions to political campaigns, updated all financials, and more! . Our staff has put their blood, sweat, and tears into this important, time-intensive effort, and we couldn’t be more proud to share the 2019 edition of The Prison Industrial Complex: Mapping Private Sector Players. Head over to the link in our bio for the full report. — #decommercializejustice #peopleoverprofit #prisondivestment #prisonindustrialcomplex #report #criminaljustice #socialjustice #divestment #massincarceration

サスティナブルな社会の実現を呼びかける世界的なイベント 🌎Earth day🌏 東京は、4月20日21日の二日間、代々木公園で開催されました。 私は気候変動対策に取り組む国際NGO の350JAPANでCO2削減の為のDivestmentについて皆さんに説明させて頂きました。 地球環境が損なわれると言われるCO2の大気中濃度350ppmから、今、地球上のCO2濃度は400ppmを超えてしまっています。 サスティナブルな社会の実現に向けた問題意識は、中高年より学生や20代30代の若いゼネレーションの方が強く敏感でした。 . 異常気象と災害が増加、加速化し、地球環境と生態系すらも破壊されつつある今、環境破壊の最も大きな原因とされる化石燃料よる火力発電や原発に依存し続ける日本は、果たして本当にG20の環境問題において、世界のリーダーシップを担っていけるのか⁈騙されてはいけない!真実を見抜いて行こう。 .. 今改めて、グレタ・トゥーンベリさんの国連広報センターでのスピーチがリフレインします。 ... #earthday #サスティナブル #気候変動 #divestment #sastinable #zerowaste #グレタトゥーンベリ #350japanoffical #gretathunberg #350japan #地球温暖化 #fossilfree

This photo was taken merely minutes after Divest BU exited from a meeting with Boston University’s President, Robert A. Brown, and BU’s Advisory Committee on Socially Responsible Investing (ACSRI). There, members of Divest BU presented and negotiated its very own Divestment/Reinvestment proposal and discussed ways BU could take their endowment out of the fossil fuel industry. We are extremely proud and thankful for all the hard work these student leaders have shown in the past months; BUT, action still needs to be taken. If you would like to help @divest_bu in its mission to #divest from the fossil fuel industry, grow the #greeneconomy and fight the #climatecrisis , please message us! Full proposal is in the bio. #bethechangeyouwanttoseeintheworld #dontwatch #act #onestepcloser to #divestment #studentpower 👊🏻🔥

Two academic members resigned from @mcgillu ’s Board of Governors as it is seeking to reject a resolution in support of divestment. Meanwhile, @yorkuniversity ’s Board of Governors continues to fail our community as it ignores our calls for divestment from weapons & fossil fuel. @yorkupresident . . #yudivest #yorku #yorkuniversity #divestment #fossilfuels #weapons #armssales #environment #climatechange #mcgill #mcgilluniversity #mcgillu #humanrights #university #students #cdnpoli #canada

When @hsbc divests from ethical Canadian oil and gas and jumps into investments in a regime with a list of human rights abuses longer than the Trans Mountain Pipeline🤔🙃 Congratulations divestment movement. #hsbc #canada #oil #divestment

Why does @hannahkb4 care about climate justice? “Climate change is more than just an environmental issue; It destroys communities, harms human health, and damages economies in ways that exacerbate existing inequalities.”
