DIVEST! The Climate Movement on Tour (Home Video Version)

Chronicles 350.org's 'Do the Math' bus tour as it launched the fossil fuel divestment campaign onto the national and ultimately international stage.

"This remarkable film holds the potential to inspire courage and meaningful action among viewers." Shannon Elizabeth Bell, Asst Prof, Sociology, University of Kentucky

As world governments struggle to meet the aspirational limit of 1.5C of global warming agreed to at COP21 in Paris, a new campaign is targeting the fossil fuel industry in an effort to withdraw its social license to operate. DIVEST! chronicles 350.org's 'Do the Math' bus tour across the United States in 2012 as it launched the fossil fuel divestment campaign onto the national and ultimately international stage.

Each night Bill McKibben and special guests laid out the findings in his landmark Rolling Stone article 'Global Warming's Terrifying New Math' and made both the moral and historical case for divestment. Three years later over 500 institutions representing over 3 trillion dollars in assets have committed to divest. The campaign is winning, but with the clock ticking down the question remains: will the victories add up enough to matter?

Featuring Naomi Klein, Reverend Lennox Yearwood, Dr. Sandra Steingraber, Josh Fox, Terry Tempest Williams, Winona LaDuke, Desmond Tutu and Ira Glass.

Reviews
"Divest! goes on a road trip with Bill McKibben, Naomi Klein, and others as they crisscross the country galvanizing people to confront the fossil fuel industry where it hurts--the industry's financial bottom-line. Part documentary, part call to action, one comes away asking not, 'What did I think about the film?' but 'What am I going to do now that I've seen it.'"

Paul Wapner, Professor of Global Environmental Politics, American University, Co-editor, Global Environmental Politics: From Person to Planet

"Divest! is a powerful testament to the importance of withdrawing support from the fossil fuel industry. As an important step in following up the Paris Accord, it vividly highlights the urgency of action. An excellent guide for community discussions."
Dr. Richard Tucker, Adjunct Professor of Natural Resources and Environment, University of Michigan, Author, Insatiable Appetite: The United States and Ecological Degradation of the Tropical World

"Teaching students about the severity of the global climate crisis without pushing them into a ravine of hopelessness can be a very difficult task. DIVEST! presents a powerful solution to this pedagogical challenge...This remarkable film holds the potential to inspire courage and meaningful action among viewers."
Shannon Elizabeth Bell, Assistant Professor of Sociology, University of Kentucky, Author, Our Roots Run Deep as Ironweed: Appalachian Women and the Fight for Environmental Justice

"Divest! puts the stars of today's climate change movement in the spotlight as they juxtapose the movement's chilling facts with its hopeful energy. This documentary is a valuable audiovisual complement to recent publications by Bill McKibben and Naomi Klein that is sure to stimulate constructive conversation in classrooms and living rooms alike."
Dr. Anna J. Willow, Assistant Professor of Anthropology, The Ohio State University
