After the success of the anti-Keystone XL Pipeline, environmental activists set their sights on persuading Universities and other investors to divest from fossil fuels. Ultimately, these efforts were unsuccessful, leading these professional activists to found the Keep It In the Ground movement, who’s mission is to keep all fossil fuels in the ground.
In this edition of The Heartland Daily Podcast, Jackie Stewart, from Energy in Depth, and Research Fellow Isaac Orr discuss the origins and influence of the Keep It In The Ground movement, and how they affect public policy. This affect on public policy comes despite receiving rebuke from Sally Jewel, the Secretary of the Interior, who dismissed the movement as unrealistic.
