FU Asks: How Would You Invest $100,000?
Welcome to an ongoing feature on the Floating University blog, FU Asks, where we open up the academic debate on our e-learning platform to the Big Think community.
This week we're featuring a discussion prompt from William Ackman, Activist Investor and CEO of Pershing Square Capital:

The week-long global protest, which is calling for an end to the age of fossil fuels, is taking place in more than 160 countries today.
