For John, BLUF: You know they are serious when the shoe pinches their toes. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From Nation of Change we have this item, "93 Harvard Faculty Members Demand University Divest from Fossil Fuels". The reporter is Ms Christina Sarich. At least I assume she is a "Ms". For her part she keeps referring to the President of Harvard, Drew Gilpin Faust with masculine pronouns, which just doesn't seem right.
Frankly, if the folks down County, in Harvard, are really serious about all this they should just cut themselves off from the Grid, leaving more for the rest of us in Middlesex County. That is the kind of move that would signal that Harvard is really serious. That is the kind of demand that would signal that the 93 Harvard Faculty Members are serious. In the mean time it is all imaginary. But, I expect, the 93 felt a warm glow after composing and signing the demands.
On the other hand, I don't think I get much benefit from their warm glow, as they likely don't read this blog or live here in the Belvidere.
