An excellent piece of news for the divestment movement – the Royal College of General Practitioners (GPs) has agreed to divest from fossil fuels!  A sort extract from the article is shown below and the full article can be read at the link.

As extreme heat puts the NHS under stress GPs have called time on the climate-wrecking fossil fuel industry. The Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) is ending its investments in all fossil fuel companies. In doing so it sends a powerful statement to society – it is no longer acceptable to be associated with the industry that has brought us to the brink of a public health emergency. The GP’s announcement comes hot on the heels of a decision by the American Medical Association (AMA) to also cut ties with gas, oil and coal companies.
