Barnard College Aims to De-Invest from ‘Climate Deniers’

, Spencer Irvine, Leave a comment

The board of trustees for Barnard College voted to de-invest from ‘climate deniers,’ but has not outlined what that means just yet:

The move comes after years of activism by the student group Divest Barnard, which initially campaigned for Barnard to divest entirely from fossil fuel investments, according to The Columbia Spectator.

Yet the college will not be divesting from fossil fuels in the traditional sense.

Instead, it will take an approach that no other college has taken before, divesting from companies that “deny climate science or otherwise seek to thwart efforts to mitigate the impact of climate change.”
