To the editor:
Bravo to the Harvard Climate Justice Coalition for the lawsuit it filed to force Harvard Corporation’s divestment from its vast holdings in toxic fossil fuels (“Student Activists File Suit Urging Harvard to Divest,” Nov. 19, 2014)!
In the same fashion that student divestment efforts in the 1980s blossomed into a worldwide, successful campaign against South African apartheid investments, may this action inspire major change at Harvard and other institutions to stem climate chaos.
These students should be thanked and emulated.
