Released the same day as the above article, another article was released in The Varsity.

Toronto350.org's response: In his courteous response to our fossil fuel divestment campaign, Li Pan argues that the evidence for social harm from fossil fuels isn't as strong as the case that tobacco harms human health. As the Fifth Assessment Report of the IPCC makes plain, the link between burning fossil fuels and social injury from climate change is now unequivocal. The article also argues that the university's reliance on fossil fuels is a reason not to divest. This gets things backwards. Our present global dependence on fossil fuels is the main reason why we need to re-direct investment to climate-safe forms of energy. The fact that we have a long way to go is an argument for immediate action, not for further delay.

Another response was written by Varsity journalist Victoria Wicks two weeks later: Responsibility for U of T’s means divestment
