Rev. Dr. Bob Massie
Tackling Climate Change: The Compelling Logic of Fossil Fuel Divestment
Tuesday 3/4, 5:30-7:00PM, 35-225 [Map]
We are very excited to be joined by Rev. Dr. Bob Massie for our second Climate Change Speaker Series event. Massie is President of the New Economy Coalition, an author, environmentalist and social activist. He is the former Executive Director of CERES, the largest coalition of environmental groups and institutional investors in the United States. In 2002, Massie was named one of the financial world’s 100 most influential people by CFO Magazine. His award-winning book, Loosing the Bonds, is the seminal account of the grassroots movement that compelled American corporations to divest during the Apartheid era.
Dr. Massie will be sharing with us his first-hand insights into the theory and effectiveness of divestment, and discussing how these translate into a compelling logic for fossil fuel divestment as a strategy to tackle climate change.
