WEBFI-TECH-Climate activists push for banks to divest from fossil fuels

Environmentalist Bill McKibben and his group Third Act, along with Valerie Rockefeller and her group BankFWD, are pushing for people over 60 to cut ties with banks that invest in fossil fuels. They joined CBS News to discuss how the initiative aims to force financial institutions to address the climate change crisis.

    These people are literally like vegans. They always need to annoy everyone else and get everyone to believe what they believe or you're wrong and stupid.

    "Global Warming" the damn weather does not always cooperate.
    Now "Climate Change" to keep the scam relevant.
    The self serving manipulation has not changed.

    Go live in the woods with no petroleum based products if u think the earth needs saved. Leave the rest of us alone to live as we see fit.

    Is that because Google dictated it. EV don't replace work trucks, EV don't replace the jobs lost, EV don't replace wages lost, EV don't replace the family's displaced, EV don't replace homelessness.

    The corporation is on a dictatorship roll and mandate. Someone needs to address the elephant in the world.

    Electric cars need charge from the electric produced by fossil fuels
    Wind and solar electric depend on the nature .no wind no power no sun in the night no power. In addition they only produce 40% of the installed capacity that means you pay 100 % to get 40 %. Manufacturers can not depend on them where the manufacturers need to produce profits.
    Stopping fiance to fossil fuel drive the cost of it as the dependent on fossil fuels yet has no available replacement technology. Stopping the financial will cut power to many house hold and not manufacture. The effort should put into improving the efficiency of the fossil fuel machines as most have less than 60% and hence can reduce emissions.

    My question is what companies have the 890 million dollar Rockefeller fund invested into ? Are these investments beneficial to the planet ? If so keep up the good work ! The transition from oil will happen when changes in technology offer a less costly alternative . As of today the oil and gas industry are too important for the welfare of million to just shut off .

    I want a food and energy crisis, let's flip the switch way before we're ready – makes a lot of sense. Not like traditional energy has its place and is needed to make the transition

  • R Montrose on January 28, 2022

    Biden is such a phony saying he wants climate change out one side of this month. Biden has now outpaced Donald Trump in issuing drilling permits on public lands.

    Here we go again. Let's fuel our cars with electricity made from coal fired plants. China building a coal plant a week. Do you really think pollution won't cross an ocean? Looks like nuclear is the way to go, but Hillary sold our resources to Russia. Why would I take someone else's opinion on banking, or anything else. Think for yourself. If you are over 60, why worry anyway.

    so boomers should put their retirement 401k at risk in order to invest in woke energy? Somehow I don't think they will do that.

    Make sure people can't heat their homes while culling the population with your experiential drugs is just brilliant

    Clean and renewable energy is a great goal, and someday we will reach it. But for now, setting limits on when it has to happen when the technology is not there to support it is really unrealistic.

    Are you upset about the banks not divesting from fossil fuels? You can hurt them if the general consumer would divest from banks. Most people reading this have a car payment. Most people reading this use a credit card.
    And there are other places in the world from where to borrow money, so the oil companies can just borrow from them instead, and thus make those other nations richer.
    And honestly, the technology to get off of fossil fuels isn't there. When the high temperature for the day is 10 degrees fahrenheit or less for the week, the solar panels are covered in snow, it is cloudy, there's no wind, and it is dark from 5pm to 8am, I would like an explanation as to how I am going to stay warm.
    When the farm equipment goes out to harvest crops, good luck running that stuff with current battery technology. In order to do it with hydrogen as a fuel, you would need to liquefy it which takes a ton of energy and dramatically reduces the efficiency of the whole process. Otherwise, the energy density is not sufficient.
    Perhaps one day energy storage technology will become good enough to make it happen, and when it does, I see no reason to continue using fossil fuels.
