Divestment From Fossil Fuels Talk
Starts: Monday, Nov 30
Ends: Monday, Nov 30 - 8:30 pm
Location: Newton Free Library, 330 Homer St, Newton, MA 02459, United States
Description: Join Green Newton for the latest in our Greening our Community Series 'Divestment from Fossil Fuels' on Monday, November 30 at 7pm at the Newton Free Library.

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.
