Webinar recording as a case study/resource:
Rob Goldberg, Barnard COO, participated in a webinar entitled "Divesting from Climate Science Deniers - The Barnard College Story". Chris Ito, CEO of Fossil Free Index, and Kathy Mulvey, Climate Accountability Campaign Manager at The Union of Concerned Scientists were also participants. They took a deep dive into Barnard College’s process of evaluating the question of fossil fuel divestment and creating an innovative approach that focuses on fossil fuel companies that deny climate science or otherwise seek to thwart efforts to mitigate the impact of climate change. Barnard’s partners at the Union of Concerned Scientists and FFI shared how their research can help inform investors on which fossil fuel companies have been hindering climate policy.
