It’s amazing to end the year on a very positive note for our environment! Ireland is nurturing a new generation of fossil fuel independence ☘️.
In the last few years, dozens of universities and churches have divested from fossil fuels. Now the first country will join the list of nearly 900 institutions that are divesting: Ireland will pull its money out of fossil fuels.
Ireland passed a bill that requires the country’s national investment fund to sell all of its investments in oil, coal, gas, and peat as soon as possible, likely within five years.
In Ireland, the bill came after campaigning from student groups and other activists.
