Harvard Faculty Urges University to Divest From Fossil Fuels

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2014-04-10/harvard-faculty-urges-university-to-divest-from-fossil-fuels.html

A group of Harvard University faculty has joined a student-led effort to force the Ivy League school to divest from fossil-fuel companies.

An open letter released today and signed by almost 100 members of the faculty calls on Harvard to sell interests in oil, gas and coal companies held in its $32.7 billion endowment. It was addressed to Drew Faust, the university’s president, and the fellows of the Harvard Corporation, the group of trustees that oversees the Cambridge, Massachusetts-based Ivy League school.
