As world governments struggle to meet the aspirational limit of 1.5°C of global warming agreed to at COP21 in Paris, a new campaign is targeting the fossil fuel industry in an effort to withdraw its social license to operate. DIVEST! chronicles's 'Do the Math' bus tour across the United States in 2012 as it launched the fossil fuel divestment campaign onto the national and ultimately international stage. 

Joined by special guests, founder Bill McKibben lays out the findings in his landmark Rolling Stone article 'Global Warming's Terrifying New Math' and makes the moral and historical case for divestment. Three years after the 'Do the Math' tour, over 500 institutions representing over three trillion dollars in assets have committed to divest. The campaign is winning, but with the clock ticking down the question remains: will the victories add up enough to matter?

Featuring Naomi Klein, Reverend Lennox Yearwood, Dr. Sandra Steingraber, Josh Fox, Terry Tempest Williams, Winona LaDuke, Desmond Tutu and Ira Glass. Music by DJ Spooky, Jonny 5 & Laura Goldhammer, Nahko & Medicine for the People and Christen Lien.
