Fossil fuel companies must be sent a clear market signal that they need to start leading and not obstructing and denying in response to climate change.

We are already in the bleak future, and it will only get worse. Climate change is here, causing mass migration and suffering. Technology exists to supply alternative energy. Princeton should be a leader by divesting from fossil fuels and protecting us and future generations.

Lives are lost every day in the climate catastrophe, so we’re beyond the point of do or die. The transition from fossil fuels to green energy cannot happen soon enough, and institutions like ours must lead the way. Princeton has committed to carbon neutrality by 2046—not soon enough—but this plan requires the logically corresponding action of divestment from fossil fuels, rendering the industry as unprofitable as it is unsustainable.

“You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words. And yet I'm one of the lucky ones. People are suffering. People are dying. Entire ecosystems are collapsing. We are in the beginning of a mass extinction, and all you can talk about is money and fairy tales of eternal economic growth. How dare you!” – Greta Thunberg

Clean energy investments help to stop climate change, save biodiversity, ensure environmental justice, grow and modernize our economy, and allow for energy independence. Fossil fuel investments do the opposite of all these things. Fossil fuels are also a finite resource and dying industry. The long-term ROI for clean energy, a limitless resource, will be astronomical. The science, morality, and finances are clear - we must divest from fossil fuels.

Climate change has already had devastating effects on communities in some developing nations, and unchecked, it will have catastrophic consequences around the world, including in the US. The University should fight for the future of our students, and of humanity, in every way possible, including divesting the endowment of holdings in fossil fuel companies. Faculty and staff should insist on retirement funds that are divested of fossil fuels. Keep the carbon in the ground!

It is impossible to reconcile Princeton’s claim to be “In the Nation’s Service and the Service of Humanity” with its refusal to reckon with the systems of exclusion, domination, and appropriation which have enabled its wealth and privileges, such as investing in and profiting from companies whose activities harm people and planet. Divesting from fossil fuels would be one small step in this reckoning and in the service of humanity.

Divestment is ethically urgent and can be done without harming the endowment. Given Princeton's stature, we should be in the ethical vanguard not reluctant followers. The reputational costs of refusing to divest from an anachronistic and immoral industry are growing by the day. Let our actions affirm an emergent world liberating from an industry with a long history of undermining the scientific projections of its own researchers and bankrolling climate denialism. Let's help safeguard the world o

Princeton's scientists and other faculty are among the leaders in modeling climate change and exploring its political and ethical implications. The university should show, by its own actions, in teaching, in its own emissions, and in its investments, that this theoretical understanding has practical consequences.

"Scientists and scholars in Princeton and around the world have catalogued in great detail the present and future impacts of climate change. But, to borrow a thought from Karl Marx, the ultimate point of all this work that the University supports should be to change what is happening. It is past time to change the practice of continuing to invest in fossil fuels."
