Five Myths About Climate Movement

 Myths about climate movement work:

  1. That climate change is simply too big and too difficult to address.
  2. That the fossil fuel industry represents the only business-as-usual future we have to have and that the industry cannot be held morally responsible for the effects of fossil fuels.
  3. That fiduciary responsibility requires us to invest where we make the highest return on our dollars and that divestment will cause lower returns and greater risk for shareholders.
  4. That it is wrong to target corporations when we are the ones using all the fuel.
  5. That divestment in fossil fuels decreases the impact that religious groups, civic organizations, educational institutions, or individuals have on the industry.
