YDN: A statement on divestment

Robert Dubrow

I am proud to be a faculty member of Yale University, one of the premier institutions of higher learning in the world. By divesting from the fossil fuel industry, Yale would exert moral leadership on climate change, which is not just one among a laundry list of issues, but rather is the most crucial challenge faced by humanity. Earlier this month, Georgetown announced its decision to divest, and the Harvard faculty voted overwhelmingly in favor of divestment. I would like to see Yale be a leader, not a laggard.
