  • A group of activists are protesting the University of Montana Foundation’s investment portfolio, urging the foundation to divest from the top 200 fossil fuel companies. Count on Coal Montana Spokesman Chuck Denowh described the protest as ironic. “I think it is very ironic that we have students here who have their tuition subsidized by coal protesting coal,” Denowh said. “I think they would be a lot more believable and sincere if they asked the state legislature to stop sending all of that coal money to the University of Montana.”
