Campus divestment effort targets fossil fuels

Campus activists are trying to persuade college and university foundations to divest in fossil-fuel companies. The campaign’s first success is a community college foundation in California. However, fossil-fuel companies account for just 1 percent of the Foothill-De Anza Foundation’s $33 million portfolio.

A coal divestment campaign failed at Brown, reports the Daily Caller, which mocks the massive carbon footprints of the jet-setting organizers.
