Monday, 16 December 2013

On December 11, the Faculty Senate overwhelmingly approved a resolution calling for Cornell to divest from companies holding large reserves of fossil fuels. According to the Ithaca Journal, the vote was 46 to 13 with two abstentions. The resolution calls for gradual divestment of endowment funds in the 200 companies holding the largest such reserves, with the University to reach climate neutrality by 2035.

In a letter to the Daily Sun signed by seven professors, the proponents stated: "Our goal is to make a strong public statement that will draw attention to the need for society to transition from fossil fuels to truly clean sources of energy that are fossil carbon neutral."

"Cornell, even with a $5 billion endowment, is saddled with $1.9 billion in debt. With endowment returns unpredictable, tuition revenue flat, and public support retreating, colleges are setting higher bars for fundraising to meet the pressure for growth."
