Mark Ruffalo calls on the Avengers to divest from fossil fuels

Mark Ruffalo is having a major activist moment. Not only will he be attending the People’s Climate March this weekend in New York City, but he was also a guest at Al Gore’s 24 Hours of Reality event and has publicly called on Obama to ban fracking ahead of the U.N.’s climate summit.

In an interview with Motherboard’s Brian Merchant, Ruffalo outlined his plans to personally divest from fossil fuels. “I’m in the process of divesting. I took the pledge,” he said, “between 3-5 years, to completely divest in any fossil fuels or anything climate change-related and put it into renewable or clean tech.”
