What is Fossil Fuel Divestment?

Energy is the lifeblood of modern society. Yet the fossil-fuel divestment movement is trying to halt our use of energy, and the products of modern life as well. These activists seek to pressure individuals and institutional investors to “divest” of stocks, bonds, and other investments in natural gas, oil, and coal companies.

This morally bankrupt movement is trying to keep billions of people in poverty, deny people access to energy, and forbid access to the lifesaving products that come from coal, natural gas, and oil—including steel, plastics, and pharmaceuticals. In other words, divestment activists want us to turn our backs not only on the energy we use in every day life, but on the products of modern civilization as well.

Help us fight against this misguided movement, and take back the reliable, affordable energy that drives America forward.
