STUDENTS ATTACK FOSSIL FUEL INDUSTRY

Here is the latest attempt by student activists to get their universities to sell their shares in the fossil fuel industry. In this case the students of Glasgow University have persuaded the Board to go along with it, and more universities are to follow, according to the article. But is this in the best interests of the fund? Surely the fund should have the best investments if the university is to balance its budget and keep the cost of tuition down. Maybe some more rational students ought to mount a challenge in the courts to reverse this?
