Nearly four hundred foundations, colleges, pension funds and others have joined the Fossil Fuel divestment movement and pledged to exclude the publicly-traded securities of coal, oil, and gas companies from their institutions’ investment portfolios.

If you “do the math” the way Bill McKibben of 350.org suggests, the carbon financial bubble either has to pop or the game is over on this planet. Moreover, if it is wrong to wreck the climate, isn’t it also wrong to profit from that wreckage. So, what about one’s investment portfolio? Can socially responsible investing be good for your own nest egg? And, what are the next steps in your own personal divestment campaign?

Please join Energy Matters board member, Barry S. Kastner, for insights into answers to these questions as well as a discussion on how and why to divest from fossil fuels.

WHEN: Tuesday, September 22 from 6 to 8 PM; presentation begins at 6:30
WHERE: Johnny Carino’s, 870 Creekview Drive
Appetizers will be provided and drinks will be available for purchase!
