The biggest contributors to global warming and co2 increase is not even the fossil fuel industry but the banks that provide the financing and thereby enable this dying industry.

Yes, it is a dying industry that is kept alive by the major banks that are trying to make quick bucks before the world turns away from fossil fuel. Major funding sources such as Black Rock, The Saudi Sovereign Wealth Fund and many pension funds are slowly realizing that the planet (and public) cannot tolerate continued fossil fuel consumption.

Will they convert in time or will the planet become uninhabitable for billions? The environmental movement, having brought the issue forward, is continuing the pressure to make sure that they do. They are subjecting branches of major fossil fuel funding banks to a continual barrage of demonstrations.

Last week In the Bay Area, Well Fargo hosted “die ins” at two peninsula branches. On Feb. 28 about thirty activists assembled in San Anselmo’s Creek Park, heard speakers and then held actions at the Red Hill Shopping Center’s Chase branch, the downtown San Anselmo Wells Fargo branch , and across the street, at a Bank of America branch.

Participating groups included 350Marin, The Sunrise Movement, The Sierra Club and Sustainable Marin.
