DEBATE: Kingsmill Bond says the fossil fuel sector is doomed, not because it will be entirely wiped out tomorrow, but because if growth simply slows, investors lose money #GLOBEcapital pic.twitter.com/cdWbAcHxcX

Tomorrow, our MPs will debate climate change in Parliament for the first time in two years. It's time MPs took this crisis seriously – starting by joining the campaign to #DivestParliament and cutting their ties to the fossil fuel industry.

We are winning. Divestment is beginning to chip away at the oil and gas industry's reputation. Even they admit it. They are starting to be seen as the climate criminals they are. Onwards to #divestment in all our communities! #IPWeek https://t.co/2IZN5VQonB

The tiger ain't changing it's stripes. Isn't it time to try a different tactic, like #divestment?
How many more years, how many more disasters and lawsuits before institutional shareholders realize Exxon is not going to change it's business model. @NYSComptroller #ExxonKnew https://t.co/IHNHlmGDaK

Selwyn College can confirm that, in line with its long-term policy of a bias to divestment from fossil fuels, it has now sold all its direct shareholdings in the sector. The decision was taken by our investment committee and approved yesterday by the college council. pic.twitter.com/95NFWJMRiP

Enough is enough. We have to summon the courage to take on the fossil fuel industry. We must accelerate our transition to clean energy, and finally put people before the profits of polluters.

The @EIB is even bigger than the World Bank, and their billions in finance could make a huge difference in the fight against climate change. Their energy policy *must* rule out oil, gas, and coal.
We demand a #FossilFreeEIB! Help us be heard: https://t.co/NQz3XZJBED
