Fossil Fuel Divestment Overture

As mentioned last week in our first blog post, the Transition Task Force (TTF) wants to use this blog to introduce ideas, changes and discussion that might come to the floor of Presbytery.

The Social Witness committee plans to bring this overture for concurrence to the floor at our meeting in a couple weeks. Here is the text of the overture.

Here are some additional resources for you as we prepare to meet in a couple weeks.

The overture was written by: Fossil Free PCUSA 

Here is both the long and short overture, with plenty of other resources.

And here is a FAQ about both concurring and divesting from fossil fuel companies.

MIT hosted a debate on the topic in April this past year.

The Guardian published an article about the movement to divest from fossil fuel companies last June.

What are your questions or concerns that you would wish the Presbytery and/or the committee bringing the question to concur to us?
