Senator Tim Wirth to Council of DC: Divest from Fossil Fuels!

In January 2016, fossil fuel divestment champion and Former Colorado Senator Tim Wirth sent a letter to the DC Council urging it to pass the Fossil Fuel Divestment Act of 2015.

“The writing is on the wall for fossil fuels; as governments take the steps enumerated in the Paris Agreement, returns on [fossil fuel] investments will continue to crumble,” Senator Wirth wrote.  “Divestment is therefore not just morally and politically the right thing to do, but is financially proactive as well.”

We hope the DC Council will heed Senator Wirth and divest the District from coal, oil and gas holdings for the sake of District residents and pensioners.
