Ireland has just made history. They have passed a vote in their lower house to become the first country to fully divest from all fossil fuels. This is HUGE. The Irish government has recognized that in order to fight climate change, we have reduce, and eventually phase out, fossil fuels. They still have one more vote to make this happen, but all parties but one are in favour – it is looking good!
Hopefully other countries (and institutions) follow Irelands lead and take the step to divest! Way to go Ireland!
