“Stop This Madness”: Rev. Lennox Yearwood Calls to Divest from Fossil Fuels Amid Climate Disasters

2 min read

Hurricane Ida and the increasing threats from extreme weather are a wake-up call to divest from fossil fuels that make climate disasters worse and more frequent, says Reverend Lennox Yearwood Jr., the president and CEO of the Hip Hop Caucus, who is originally from Shreveport, Louisiana, and established the Gulf Coast Renewal Campaign after Hurricane Katrina. “We know who is causing these storms. We know who is causing the climate crisis. They’re right there in Louisiana with us: It’s the fossil fuel industry. So we’ve got to stop it,” Yearwood says.
