The campaign to sell fossil fuel stocks distracts time and attention from efforts that can make a difference in global warming, says Andrew Holland, who studies the intersection of climate change and national security at the American Security Project in Washington D.C.

Last month, the University of Colorado rejected calls to divest from fossil fuels.
Holland spoke to Colorado Matters host Ryan Warner in the second part of our look at fossil fuel divestment.
