Recently ,Peter Arpin of ReNewable Now interviewd some bright students from Brown University about the Brown Divest Coal organization .

The Brown Divest Coal Campaign is a brand-new student group that is asking Brown  University to divest from 15 of the largest and filthiest coal companies in America. We believe that our university should not be profiting from an industry as dangerous and outdated as coal, which devastates human health and the environment at each step in its life-cycle. Coal is the single largest source of greenhouse gases worldwide and thus a huge contributor to climate change. Mountaintop removal coal mining has already destroyed more than a million acres in Appalachia, and air pollution from coal-fired power plants kills 13,000 Americans each year.
