Ieefa.org - Excellent divestment resource

I'm going to recommend some divestment resources. The first is Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis - ieefa.org

I hope readers of this blog find some inspiration and will pursue divestment within their own church, university pension fund or local council. Over the years I have read a lot on divestment and the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis ieefa.org is one of the best sources of information and Tom Sanzillo, their Director of Finance, is very quotable.

Recently the ieefa.org released a report —“The Financial Case for Fossil Fuel Divestment”— that gives an up-to-date and robust reasoning for divestment. The article IEEFA update: Divestment 101 provides a useful summary of the report and this graph which shows the poor performance of fossil fuels over the last 5 years.
