This article explains what is being done to try to remove investments from fossil fuel companies and into renewable energy. Of course those attempting to do this will claim that it is being done to 'save the planet', but many people now realise that the evidence to back up this claim simply doesn't exist.

Normally manipulating the market would be a criminal offence. Why should these people be exempt from this in a free market economy?
