Should the UC Divest from Fossil Fuel?

Hosted by ,

One issue Southern California students care about is global climate change. Claremont’s Pitzer College just joined a national campaign to divest from the fossil fuel industry. Student activists in the ten college UC system are also calling for their institutions to follow suit. But many asset managers believe that divestment from the energy sector is financially irresponsible. Guest host Barbara Bogaev considers both sides of the debate. Also, the $400 million trash train to nowhere, and a look at the latest in virtual reality and how Hollywood is trying to get us all wearing Goggles.
