This week, Bill talks with two leaders who helped inspire the new fossil fuel divestment movement that the Archbishop of South Africa, Desmond Tutu, is encouraging.  Ellen Dorsey is executive director of the Wallace Global Fund and a catalyst in the coalition of 17 foundations known as Divest-Invest Philanthropy. Thomas Van Dyck is Senior Vice President – Financial Advisor at RBC Wealth Management, and founder of As You Sow, a shareholder advocacy foundation.

They are urging foundations, faith groups, pension funds, municipalities, and universities to sell their shares in polluting industries and reinvest in companies committed to climate change solutions.
