Bill McKibben is talking on Fossil Fuel Divestment in Edinburgh, 30th October

 If it’s wrong to wreck the climate, then it’s wrong to profit from that wreckage.

We’re all connected to institutions that claim to be looking out for the public good, from local councils and governments, to universities, public banks and religious institutions. Many of these institutions, however, continue to support the fossil fuel industry whether we know it or not. Given that we have to leave 80% of the proven reserves of coal, oil and gas in the ground in order to avoid catastrophic changes to our climate, these institutions have a responsibility to stop supporting an industry whose business model is based on wrecking our future.

This autumn Bill McKibben, the 350.org crew, and a wide range of climate leaders will hit the road to help build a movement strong enough to change the terrifying maths of the climate crisis. The Fossil Free Europe Tour isn’t your typical lecture – it will include speakers from across social movements, powerful videos, and music from the ground-breaking artist Filastine. Grab a ticket and be part of a unique and complete experience, unlike any talk you’ve been to before.

7-10pm, 30th October, 

Asembly Hall on the Mound
