What: The Financial and Scientific Urgency for City and State Divestment: A Webinar
When: 8:00 PM Eastern Time / 5:00 PM Pacific Time Monday, Dec 10
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change recently reported that the global community has just 12 years to limit global warming to under 1.5 degrees, beyond which climate disasters will be magnified. Governments everywhere need to rapidly reduce fossil fuel use — and it’s up to all of us to apply the pressure necessary for cities, states and nations to take action.
