It’s simple math: we can burn 565 more gigatons of carbon and stay below 2°C of warming — anything more than that risks catastrophe for life on earth. The only problem? Fossil fuel corporations now have 2,795 gigatons in their reserves, five times the safe amount. And they’re planning to burn it all — unless we rise up to stop them.
PSR Wisconsin joins Clean Wisconsin, 350 Madison, Citizens Climate Lobby and others in calling on the UW to divest from fossil fuel companies.Learn more here.

To find out, read this month's Policy Institute as it answers the question: What does fracking mean for human health?

The mining bill coming up for a vote in our Legislature would jeopardize the water of the Bad River watershed, the largest area of undeveloped wetlands in the upper Great Lakes, and risk the health of mine workers and people in communities dependent on the watershed and downwind of the mine.Source: Wisconsin State Journal
