Jerry Large’s column is an inspiration for all of us with means to divest our 401(k)s, pensions, savings, etc., from any company that is a primary producer of fossil fuels and invest more in clean and green energy [“UW students keep pressure on divestment for climate change,” Local News, May 14].
The boomer generation has the greatest accumulation of wealth in our history and we are the ones who need to be thinking about our children and our grandchildren’s future. As the Native Americans say, “All the way to the seventh generation.”
I applaud the students who are leading the way in this movement of divestment. They understand the urgency of the global crisis, especially as it will impact the hundreds of millions of people who are living at sea level.
We should all take notice and join in the movement for environmental justice for all of the creatures of this planet, including us human beings.
