    “The environmental movement ought to spend what political capital it
    still has on efforts that wed economic growth and environmental
    sustainability,…”

    Not going to happen, too many “environmentalists” have as a agenda keeping economic growth squelched, for various reasons. Such as, keeping them and their descendants safely on top of the socioeconomic heap.

    “The environmental movement ought to spend what political capital it still has on efforts that wed economic growth and environmental sustainability, rather than hold up grand but ultimately hollow gestures as some sign that the world is ready to stop burning fossil fuels.”

    Or that there is any validity to their contention of “Global Warming”.

    Forget about divesting, they should give it all back then.
