Church of England produces biased survey on fossil fuel disinvestment
The EIAG has brought out a survey on fossil fuel disinvestment that needs to be in by 18th December. Operation Noah thinks this survey is terribly biased in favour of remaining invested.
Ruth Jarman, an Operation Noah board member, said, ‘We are pleased to see that the EIAG is seeking stakeholder views on disinvestment. However, surveys must be carefully designed so that they are fair and un-biased. The EIAG survey seems to us to be prejudiced against fossil fuel disinvestment – we are concerned that people completing the survey will make flawed judgements based on incomplete and confusing information.’
Please see Operation Noah’s statement here. Operation Noah is encouraging people to write about their concerns about the survey to the EIAG and to only fill in the survey if they make liberal use of the comment boxes. You will find a link to the survey from the Operation Noah statement.
