Seattle’s pension board refuses to divest from fossil fuels | The Stranger

If the world fails to take drastic action, entire regions of the globe could become nearly unlivable by the end of the century due to climate change.

The UW’s Charlie Donovan, professor of sustainable finance, and Riddhi Mehta-Neugebauer, a doctoral student in political science, are quoted.
