Just a few days ago, divestinvest.org was reporting that the total of individual assets pledged to divest from the top 200 coal, oil, and gas companies was over $3 billion, from 2,408 individual investors.
That in itself was good news. But today, the site posted a stunning new total: $4,715,012,908 (over. $4.7 billion) pledged from 11,913 individuals. We have updated our individual divestment campaign pages accordingly.
Congratulations to all of those people who took the pledge to divest their portfolios from fossil fuels.
