State of Oregon slow-rolls getting public money out of fossil fuel investments

dreamstime_s_89159318.jpg

If we stop burning fossil fuels, we stop putting so much carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases into the air. Simple statement, not simply achieved.

Just the same, the Divest Oregon movement thinks it's time to start. As the name implies, DO wants the state of Oregon to get its investment money--including public employee pensions--out of fossil fuel businesses within five years.

The state is not in a hurry to do so. We hear the pro-divestment viewpoint from Susan Palmiter, Co-Leader of DO, and from Andrew Bogrand, Communications Director.
