Supplementary notes

*Question originally phrased as "For the world to avoid catastrophic climate change, scientists say 80% of the world’s current fossil fuel reserves – oil, gas and coal – need to stay in the ground. If major fossil fuel companies are relying on burning these reserves to stay profitable, do you think investing in fossil fuel companies is a risky strategy long-term?"
