landscape and at risk for exposure to natural and artificial
contaminants. Other parts of the infrastructure are aging rapidly and

supplies safe, clean, and accessible for all? Meet Marcis Kempe, an
experienced MWRA engineer with insight into how the system keeps pumping

There will be an in-depth discussion by presenters Bob Massie, Founder of the Investor Network on Climate Risk; and Ann Berwick, Green Newton Board member, former MA Undersecretary for Energy and head of the Department of Public Utilities in the Patrick Administration.
Bob's talk will cover arguments in support of the current movement for divestment from fossil fuel, as well as investor "fiduciary duty". Ann will discuss the arguments both for and against institutional divestment from fossil fuels, concluding that the pro-divestment arguments are more compelling.
Bob Massie received his doctorate from the Harvard Business School and has authored a prize-winning history of the South African divestment movement. Ann Berwick's June 1 op ed piece "Time for Harvard to cut its investment in fossil fuels" was featured in the Boston Globe.
Co-sponsored by Green Newton and 350 Mass Newton.
