9 thoughts on “Will state AGs make investing in fossil fuel companies illegal?”

  1. When Oxford’s then Vice-Chancellor [he is now president of NYU] proposed last year that the university would no longer invest in coal or tar sands, I told my College [Univ] that I would discontinue my modest annual giving until this policy was clarified or withdrawn. That is one small way an alumnus can fight against investment embargoes encouraged by the state in at least some cases.

  2. I wonder which AG will have the nerve to indict George Soros for his purchase oc coal company (depressed) stocks?

  3. The unholy alliance of politicians and scientists is threatened. For society’s sake, amnesty is recommended for those who used public funds to deceive the public for the past seventy years (1946-2016).

    Pages 153-154 of Fred Hoyle’s autobiography [Home Is Where The Wind Blows, 1994] explains exactly how the internal composition of the Sun was changed from

    _ a.) Mostly iron (Fe) in 1945 to
    _ b.) Mostly hydrogen (H) in 1946

    Paul K. Kuroda’s autobiography explains how the definition of nuclear stability was falsified, changing nuclear physics textbooks to show

    _ c.) Lowest value of Aston’s nuclear packing fraction before 1945, to
    _ d.) Highest value of Weizsacker’s nuclear binding energy per nucleon after 1946.

    There is little, or no doubt that deceit carries its own seeds of destruction. The challenge now is to restore integrity to science and constitutional limits on government without physical violence.

  4. The pressure on investors is created by a flimsy set of suppositions:

    Supposition 1: A 2C global warming target is internationally agreed.
    Supposition 2: Carbon Restrictions are enacted by governments to comply with the target.
    Supposition 3: Demand for oil and gas products is reduced due to restrictions
    Supposition 4: Oil and gas assets become uneconomic for lack of demand.
    Supposition 5: Company net worth declines by depressed assets and investors lose value.

    Behind this chain of thoughts is revealed the alternate reality inhabited by activists.

  5. I seek a publisher of my research mentor’s, Paul Kazuo Kuroda (1917-2091), insight while he stood in the ruins of Hiroshima in AUG 1945:

    The research project Kuroda assigned in 1960:

    1. Confirmed Kuroda’s AUG 1945 insight into the beginning of the world; and

    2. Exposed the misinformation inserted in the foundations of nuclear and solar physics after nations and national academies of sciences were united on 24 OCT 1945

  6. @Oliver: Paul Kazuo Kuroda (1917-2091) is a remarkable man, not only for his longevity (174 years) but for knowing well in advance the year in which he will die.

  7. Investments by institutions in so called ‘fossil fuels’ are some of the most profitable investments they can make for their employees retirement funds.

    How will those institutions who divest in such profitable returns explain it to their employees when they lose their retirements?

  8. I feel there is now no limit to how far politicians will put opinion above duty. Some future generation will look back and say “political action saved the world”, while they huddle in the cold and dark. Crazy times.
