Film Synopsis:
As world governments struggle to meet the aspirational limit of 1.5°C of global warming agreed to at COP21 in Paris, the ‘Do the Math’ campaign is gaining international support. Targeting the fossil fuel industry in an effort to withdraw its social license to operate, DIVEST! chronicles Bill McKibben’s work on the 'Do the Math' bus tour across the United States in 2012 as it launched the fossil fuel divestment campaign.

Blending global warming science, concert performances, and inspiring speeches each night, Bill McKibben and special guests laid out the findings in his landmark Rolling Stone article 'Global Warming's Terrifying New Math' and made both the moral and historical case for divestment. Three years later over 500 institutions representing over 3 trillion dollars in assets have committed to divest. The film explores the inspiration and action that can happen when we engage our communities. 

Running Time: 77 minutes
