Rockefellers Refuse to Divest Fracking Investments Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Mon, Sep 29, 2014, 10:46 PM

The Rockefeller family recently announced that they would sell off all their fossil fuels investments. Nevertheless, they continue to invest big-time into fracking companies that pollute the soil and water to tap into natural gas.

The Daily Caller reports that, "The heirs of 19th century oil baron John D. Rockefeller made headlines recently by announcing they would be divesting their charitable group from fossil fuel investments — the very fuels that made the Rockefellers a wealthy dynasty."

Stephen Heintz, president of the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, is quoted as saying that, “What’s healthy at the moment is this debate, because it’s forcing people to really study closely what the actual environmental impacts of fracking are.”

"But," according to the Daily Caller, 'what the Rockefellers forgot to mention in their announcement was that they might exactly divest from all fossil fuels. A Politico Pro article published behind a paywall Friday reported the Rockefellers were considering hanging on to their natural gas investments for a while longer."

Environmental activists are outraged that the Rockefeller family continues to incest in fracking.
