Community, Energy, and Memes: LETTER FROM NOBEL PRIZE WINNERS TO NOBEL FOUNDATION Letter from Nobel Prize winners and scientists of the Nobel-winning IPCC urging the Nobel Foundation to divest from fossil fuels 32 years ago Desmond Tutu got NobelPrize for role in ending apartheid. Today he calls on Nobel Prize to divest gofossilfree "To the Nobel Foundation: We, scientists and Nobel laureates from around the world, are writing to request that the Nobel Foundation take further action on climate change by ending its investments in fossil fuels. More than 600 institutions with total assets of more than $3.4 trillion, have committed to divest from fossil fuels, taking a clear stance against the main drivers of climate change. This includes over 100 foundations and major cities such as Stockholm, Paris, Copenhagen, Washington DC and Berlin. Eminent educational institutions and academies such as the California and Australian Academies of Science and Phipps Conservatory, and universities such as Stockholm, Stanford, and Yale – which have provided numerous laureates – have also made divestment commitments. Faith organisations numbering in the hundreds have cut their financial ties to fossil fuel companies. It is time for the Nobel Foundation to join these ranks. We believe that the Nobel Foundation – for all that it represents – the good and creativity of humanity – should not profit from the destruction of our planet’s climate. We call on the Nobel Foundation to fully align its investments with its principles and mission by: Immediately stopping any new investments in companies who derive more than 5% of their revenue from coal, oil and gas Dropping coal, oil and gas from its investment portfolio by divesting from these fossil fuel companies within five years, and Publicly communicating the foundation’s commitment and regularly reporting on implementation of its progress. Committing to and prioritising reinvesting the majority of its portfolio into climate solutions that support renewable energy, clean energy access and energy efficiency, and community adaptation and resiliency. We believe that the Nobel Foundation can influence not only others to divest, but also inspire our world leaders and our fellow citizens to act more swiftly to address climate change. The time could not be more urgent." http:-gofossilfree.org-europe-letter-from-nobel-prize-winners-to-nobe
