January saw the union launch a campaign to encourage local government pension funds to divest from carbon – in other words, to pull their hard-earned money out of environment-unfriendly businesses. Some £16bn of local government pension funds is invested in fossil fuels and, with five million members in those schemes, the campaign can make an impact.

I got a quick re...
