Diplomats from all over the world are meeting in Geneva this week to draft a crucial plan to address climate change. For this reason, a worldwide fossil fuel divestment movement has marked February 13 and 14, Global Divestment Days. Locally, the Fossil Free Pitt Coalition and the Thomas Merton Center are holding a fossil fuel divestment rally and teach-in at the University of Pittsburgh. Nick Goodfellow, a student organizer with Fossil Free Pitt Coalition and Gabe McMorland, an organizer at the Thomas Merton center talk with us about the local efforts to divest from fossil fuel industries.
