Before telling you about this weekend we want to let you know that we are raising the following question at the Council meeting tomorrow:
Considering that 80% of all known fossil fuels must stay in the ground to avoid warming by more than 2 degrees as well as the need to ensure Pension funds are not left in these potentially stranded assets, will the Council recommend that the Derbyshire County Council Pension Fund
Immediately freeze any new investments in fossil fuels?
Divest from direct ownership and any commingled funds that include fossil fuel public equities and corporate bonds within 5 years?
Do come along to the Council House at 6pm, hear the Council reply and meet other supporters.
