The article looks at the weaknesses of the carbon divestment campaign of the organization 350.org founded by Bill McKibben. The Do the Math campaign is said to be aimed at obliging universities, churches and other institutions to divest their fossil fuel investment portfolios. According to the author, the campaign fails to recognize the basic economics of the fossil fuel industry. The stock market's function and the role of government in dealing with the climate crisis are discussed.
