We're working on a number of projects that we believe are critical to outdoor life in Vermont. For the past year we have been focused through three committees, Energy and Climate Change, Water Quality, Habitats and Wetlands, and Forest and Wildlife. Through these committees we have participated in the Peoples Climate March, Wilderness 50 Celebration, and helped pass legislation promoting clean up our lakes, streams and rivers from nutrient and other pollution.
The Vermont Pension Investment Committee (VPIC), the committee that oversees Vermont's pension fund investments, will be discussing fossil fuel divestment at their meeting on in Montpelier. In advance of VPIC's meeting, the Vermont Chapter of the Sierra Club's Energy and Climate Committee submitted a letter to urge VPIC to divest from its fossil fuel holding.
