    Yale Students Ticketed for Occupying Investment Office Demanding Fossil Fuel Divestment

    “it is unethical and is nonsense to invest in fossil fuels”

    Why are these students paying tuition to attend Yale? They’re obviously smarter than the people who are paid to run the school.

    WTNH News reports:

    15 Yale students ticketed for occupying Yale Investment Office

    15 Yale students received tickets for participating in a “sit-in” in at Yale’s Investment Office Monday night.

    The students held the demonstration demanding that Yale get rid of any investments tied to Puerto Rico’s debt and the fossil fuel business.

    Nash Keyes, a student from the protest said that it is unethical and is nonsense to invest in fossil fuels.

    “Fossil fuel corporations are in an industry that is generating power in a way that is not going to be sustainable for the next 50 years.”

    Yale reports that they have examined all of their investment issues, including climate change and Puerto Rico’s debts. According to the University, they are one of the first instititions to formally address the ethical responsibilities of institutional investors. More information can be found on Yale’s Ethical Investment Policy.

    I find fossil fuels are sustaining my retirement very well.

    Tickets? Suspend them. That will stop this once and forever. Do what Claremont McKenna, it suspended a couple and told a senior he would not be graduating(it did not say what the effect of that was in the release). That was the last attempt by Claremont’s students to interfere with a program.

    Wonder how many of these Yale students got in through the alleged bribery?
