The New Divestment Campaign: Fossil Fuels

by Categorized: Environment, New London Date:

New London has joined other cities, including San Francisco, CA, Providence, RI, Santa Monica, CA, Ithaca, NY, Madison, WI, and Seattle, WA. by voting to dump fossil fuels from its pension fund investments.

“I think today’s action demonstrates the City of New London is on the forefront of environmentally conscious thinking,” Mayor Daryl Justin Finizio said in a statement released by a public relations firm working for the city.“There is no better way to demonstrate New London’s commitment to being an environmentally conscious leader than in choosing where the City invests its money.”
