Episode 1: The Creighton Climate Movement with Hugh Truempi
Welcome to the Good Life Podcast! In this episode, Michaela Mast talks "divestment" with Hugh Truempi, one of the student leaders of the Creighton Climate Movement.  Divestment as a movement has gained a lot of traction very recently as a way to decouple the growth of endowments from fossil fuels, but as a concept it has been around much longer. During the era of Apartheid in South Africa, divestment was used to put pressure on the government and helped to dismantle the system. In the fight against climate change, divestment from fossil fuels has resurged. The initiative from BlackRock (the world's largest asset manager) to separate itself from CO2 releasing fuels has inspired many groups to do the same, and Hugh wants Creighton University to get in on the action.
