A group of Western Michigan University students and faculty say the university ought to drop its investments in oil and other fossil fuels. That’s because of the role they say those fuels play in furthering climate change.

Members of the group, WMU Divest, held a rally for the campaign today at noon. The setting: a parking ramp near a cluster of solar panels on Western's campus.
