Many of us grow up with the assumption that stock traders are just rich people looking to make a quick buck (or 5 billion). However, investing is also a way to show your support for an industry and company. Aside from myself, I know several people who are now engaged in “impact investing,” investing in solar companies, electric car companies (ahem, Tesla), wind companies, energy efficiency companies, and other cleantech companies.

The other side of that coin is divesting from fossil fuel companies. To make that move hotter, some Santa Clara University rappers make a case for that while also having some fun:

Keep up to date with all the hottest cleantech news by subscribing to our (free) cleantech newsletter, or keep an eye on sector-specific news by getting our (also free) solar energy newsletter, electric vehicle newsletter, or wind energy newsletter.

    Herd effects work in favour of the divestment movement. An amoral investor (“Harvard”) will divest if they think that other investors are about to do so. Let’s go out and destroy a few trillion in death certificates.

      Yes, see a lot of potential here. Probably easier to get a snowball effect in this arena than in many others. And it’s a given with fossil fuels, just a matter of time. I think the time has come…

    Stop burning fossil fuels.
