An institution as rich and as powerful as Princeton should lead the way on climate solutions without any “help” from bad actors in the fossil fuel industry. Divestment is the first step toward justice and a Princeton we can be proud of.

As an institution bearing the motto “in our nation’s service” and prioritizing innovation, it is Princeton’s duty to divest from fossil fuels and take the next steps toward supporting cleaner energy sources. As Princetonians, we must take an active role in the betterment of our futures and hold Princeton to the same standard.

Climate change is no longer solely an environmental crisis, it’s a humanitarian crisis and the moral imperative of our time. Princeton’s continual involvement and legitimization of the fossil fuel industry is in direct conflict with the university’s motto “Princeton in the nation’s service and the service of humanity”. With fossil fuels presenting an existential threat to humanity, it is imperative that Princeton University divests its endowment as a first step towards climate justice.

Princeton cannot claim be in the service of humanity while simultaneously investing in and partnering with companies that are fueling the destruction of our planet. Other universities, such as the University of California schools, have divested and are doing fine with funding. Princeton, having the largest per student endowment of any university in the US, has no excuse not to divest.

Without a shift to renewable, sustainable energy, climate change isn't going to stop. Fortunately, until real action is taken to end Princeton's ties to the fossil fuel industry and companies like Exxon Mobil, neither are we: the students, alumni, faculty and staff who will stop at nothing to get Princeton to divest from fossil fuels. Action is non-negotiable when it comes to climate change.

If Princeton is truly committed to fostering equity and becoming an anti-racist institution, it must recognize the need to divest from fossil fuel industries. Princeton cannot claim to promote these initiatives without first recognizing the disproportionate devastating effects of climate change on BIPOC communities. There should be no debate; divestment is necessary for the future of our planet.

I support divestment because a leading scientific institution such as Princeton has an obligation to abide by the solid scientific consensus around the terrible impact caused by fossil fuels. The continuing investment in fossil fuel companies while stating that investments are not political is scientific negationism, of the kind that is destroying millions of lives in the world today, and this cannot be the stance of a world-class research university.

Laeo Crnkovic-Rubsamen '23
Laeo Crnkovic-Rubsamen '23

I support Divestment because investment in fossil fuels is not a political statement but is instead a moral statement. It says that Princeton does not care about future generations & the lower income people all over this world who will have to deal with the immediate effects of climate change while the elite of the Ivy league will be sitting in their ivory tower. As a student & future Alumni of Princeton it disgusts me to know that my tuition is being used to fund the destruction of the planet

Anne Wen '23
Anne Wen '23

Activities from fossil fuel companies historically marginalize people of color and indigenous communities. As a university that advocates "in the nation's service and the service of humanity," Princeton ought to support underrepresented groups. Princeton relies on annual giving for donation funds, but in the same way, alums and students donate because we pride ourselves on the University's mission — including the desire to create a more climate-friendly world.

An ongoing relationship with corporations that are large polluters and climate change deniers, such as Exxon, sends the clear message that Princeton does not care about our planet. As one of the most prominent and esteemed universities, Princeton has the duty of operating with integrity - taking dirty money fails that goal.

A vote for divestment is a vote for our future. I'm voting YES to divest because I believe Princeton has the power and duty to lead the world toward sustainability now and for years to come.

I support divestment because conserving a healthy planet for the future depends on it. I support divestment because the fossil fuel industry is responsible for not only severe environmental degradation, but also pollution and destruction of indigenous lands as well as harm to indigenous people around the world. Princeton has a responsibility to discontinue its involvement in this legacy.

Not only are fossil fuels outdated and in need of replacement, but have also underperformed versus the market for the past decade. I cannot see how investing in a steadily declining market is a smart strategy for profits, something the university must care dearly about.

The Divestment referendum is not only a good move in the right direction for Princeton, but a necessary one. With the environmental crisis facing the globe today, it is necessary that Princeton stays true to being “In the Nation’s Service” and actively takes steps to address this dilemma. As someone who does calling for Annual Giving, I see support for divestment from alumni, undergraduates, and graduates alike.

As a Californian this is personal. Climate Change has and will continue to tear apart this nation if we don’t start taking this issue seriously.

It is my firm belief that if Princeton does not begin to take steps towards divestment, it will be an incredible failure in its service to humanity. Not only is it an important step in order to fight climate change, but it is also a symbolic action that could result in other universities following us. Princeton must be a leader in environmental sustainability & without divestment, we never will be.

After witnessing firsthand the effects of climate change on glacial shrinkage in Bolivia, I realize that we in the U.S. typically do not recognize the existential threat that climate change poses.

The greatest leverage we have as Princeton students in the climate fight is the Princeton name and its $26 billion endowment.

And we are optimistic that they will. We don’t have the luxury of believing that they won’t.

Divestment is an important measure of Princeton's commitment to a carbon-negative future and the decoupling of the economy from carbon and pollution intensive industries such as fossil fuels.

I live in Sacramento. Like millions of Californians, and indeed, everyone on the West Coast, this summer I had to endure, on top of pandemic, weeks of wildfire-poisoned air.

That’s why I’ve added my name to Divest Princeton.

Divestment is the easiest choice we can make now to avert further climate catastrophe.

Climate change is a profoundly moral issue. It is beyond time for Princeton to cut ties with the industry which bears responsibility for it until they have credible business plans - not just empty talking points - to align their work with a livable future. At this late date in the climate crisis, and with the admirable role that the university's scientists have played in forecasting the impacts of the climate crisis, Princeton's failure to divest is ethically inexplicable and hard to fathom.

Stop alumni contributions until Princeton divests from fossil fuels.

Fossil fuel companies are doing huge damage to the atmosphere of the planet. The grants and awards they make to Universities help gag their most qualified critics. These financial costs of theses awards are easily lost within the huge subsidies they receive from governments. These subsidies hugely distort the playing field for more viable alternative energy technologies: wind, solar, hydro and tidal. Fossil fuel companies are barely competitive as industries in the Covidocene.

"Princeton University strives to uphold a standard as a world-renowned educational institution: it educates in the interest of humanity. And yet it violates that mission every day by its choice to divorce itself from the consequences of the investments it makes to serve that purpose. If any institution has the wherewithal to set an example through fossil fuel divestment as we face an existential climate crisis, it is Princeton University."

I have been fighting for climate & environmental justice for over 35 years, so this issue is central to my life's mission and values. This next decade will be a critical one for all life on the planet: We must adhere to global average greenhouse gas emissions cuts of at least 7.6% per year if we are to avoid possibly runaway climate change. Princeton must put its motto of "Princeton in the nation's service" into action and stop underwriting an industry that threatens present & future generations

Climate change is the greatest threat facing current and future generations. Further, oil and gas companies continue to lose money as the US energy system transitions. Princeton should divest both because it's the right thing to do and because it makes financial sense.

"Princeton's endowment is meant to last us hundreds of years. We need to consider investments that support this commitment to the future, instead of short-term industries that externalize their impact to the environment and global poor. The endowment won't be worth much without a civilization to use it."

Divesting from fossil fuels means investing in our collective future. Refusing to divest means actively choosing to invest in a system that is hastening the end of human society. Princeton, please, stand on the right side of history.

Professor of Sociology, University of Maryland Contributing Author, IPCC WG3 Sixth Assessment Report. ​ "To date, Oxford University, Harvard, Brown, Georgetown, American University, and the University of California system have committed to divest from fossil fuels. Princeton should join this exclusive club of forward-thinking institutions and show the world that the university is following through on its promise in the service of the nation and the world."

The effects of climate change are increasingly apparent, as we appreciate the damage that increasing global pandemics, social injustic, and extreme weather can inflict on bodies and minds. The denialism of the fossil fuel companies has undermined the future of all Princeton students, jeopardizing the security of their food, water, health, and nation. Princeton cannot be committed to truth and student well being and continue to subsidize companies which cause and deny harm.

"The least that Princeton University can do is divest all its fossil fuel assets. We know Princeton has made some effort to combat climate change through its research, and we are proud of its efforts. But we are not proud that Princeton, with its huge endowment, still feels it must profit from the climate crisis. The university needs to join the growing tide of universities, foundations, and other institutions in fully divesting its endowment from fossil fuels. Show the world that Princeton al

Princeton must divest from fossil fuel companies immediately to stop contributing to the climate crisis. It undermines its own forward-thinking research in this field by acting in direct opposition to what these findings urge us to do. Any financial gains from these investments do not come close to outweighing the detrimental consequences for the planet, which are no longer abstract projections but an alarming reality we are faced with today.

The carbon in the ground only becomes money when it is dumped into our air. To even slow the acceleration of our climate disasters, we must remove the financial motivation to dump carbon into our shared reservoir of air. Princeton's underwriting of these companies is a disservice to planetary habitability.

"If "Princeton in the Nation’s Service and in the Service of the World” is to be anything more than empty verbiage, then the university must stop benefiting financially from an industry that has allowed its entrenched greed to lead our civilization towards suicide. The entire sector has been rejected institutional investors with trillions of dollars because they understand it has no future.. Divest Princeton has done the best analysis of the urgent need for divestment I have ever seen. Princeton

"In the face of the overwhelming nature of the climate crisis, I look for levers of power and change to which I have access. Princeton is a powerful lever; I have thrown my weight as an alumna, and gathered the weight of other alumni, to push the University to act "in the service of humanity" and hasten our transition away from fossil fuels, through every means available--including divestment."

John Oakes '83

Princeton has a duty--to its immediate community and to the planet--to be a responsible steward of its resources. That means not only increasing its endowment of close to $30 billion, but investing it morally. "Princeton" is more than an abstract concept: as a corporation, its actions have real consequences. Recycling and building "environmentally friendly" dorms is not enough. Princeton's real impact comes through its staggering financial power.

To put it fairly bluntly, Princeton will have blood on its hands and will have little credibility in claiming to be in the service of all humanity by running itself like a hedge fund and profiting on carbon emissions and the loss of biodiversity, loss of land, and loss of life that anthropogenic climate change will and already has created.

Princeton aims to shape students in the service of humanity, yet the very nature of its self-perpetuation threatens humanity's ability to thrive. The endowment contradicts the deep commitment to climate action already apparent in the University’s research, teaching, and campus life. Divestment would send a powerful signal to all institutions that fossil fuels are incompatible with educating the next generation of leaders, who will disproportionately experience the consequences of inaction.

I have a relatively dependable history of contributing to Annual Giving. This year I have decided to make my essentially symbolic donation to the Black Leadership Council instead of the University in hopes of adding my small voice to the to the calls for Princeton to divest from fossil fuels. If the University took such action it would embody "Princeton in the Nation's Service" and I would joyfully become a donor again.

Juan Sepulveda '18

The most persuasive method for progress is endangering the revenue streams of irresponsible institutions, as they have already made the choice to hold profit above all else. This includes Princeton as well. For it is as complicit as every company in its portfolio for every violation to humanity and the environment that it chooses to uphold or oversee.

Maya Aronoff '19, SINSI

Princeton cannot possibly be in the "service of humanity" if it contributes to the very fossil fuel industry that will inevitably destroy all of humanity. Fossil fuels directly contribute to the destruction of every person on this planet, especially indigenous peoples and under-resourced communities around the world.

There is no greater threat to life on earth than continued emission of carbon and methane. Any institution that invests in fossil fuels is complicit in those emissions. If Princeton divested from apartheid South Africa, there is no excuse not to divest from fossil fuels.

Most people don't realize that fossil-fuel-free investment is possible and of needed environmental and societal benefit. The effects of climate change are deeply affecting many populations worldwide, not to mention ecological systems and biodiversity. Because they haven’t reached Princeton, NJ, yet, doesn't mean we shouldn't fight less for conservation efforts. If only people cared less about individual wealth and more about Earth’s preservation.
