Bloomberg’s New Tool

Divestment is about shifting the conversation surrounding fossil fuels.  There’s no better evidence that this is working than Bloomberg developing a new tool that helps investors quantify and evaluate the risks that climate change and the Carbon Bubble can cause to their portfolios.  Check out the full story at Think Progress.

“Nor are policy decisions by national governments the only questions on the table. There’s also local efforts to cut carbon emissions and pollution, efforts to reduce water use, the rise of renewable energy, and pressure from organized movements, such as the one pushing divestment from fossil fuel companies across the United States.”

Solidarity with Elsipogtog Mi’kmaq First Nation

Today was an emergency day of solidarity with the Mi’kmaq, who are fighting fracking and for the survival of their land and communities in New Brunswick, Canada, with incredibly brave encampments and blockades.  There were solidarity actions across the world.  To learn more about those actions, click here.  To learn more about what’s going on in Canada, click here.

“We remember the last time the RCMP enforced an injunction against the Mi’kmaq people. As seen historically, the RCMP will continue to enforce the violation of treaties and attack Indigenous self-determination. At this time, the RCMP are not only harassing Mi’kmaq Land Defenders and non-Native supporters, but continuing to throw them in jail. On Thursday, November 28th the Mi’kmaq again turned SWN away – declaring another day of victory. They are standing up against brutal police repression, and continued theft of Indigenous lands and ongoing colonization. Show them they are not alone!”
