Ways you can fight against climate change
By Rob Keithan
From decisions about heating and lighting to lobbying your members of Congress, there are countless ways for UU congregations and individuals to get involved with the global warming issue selected by the 2004 General Assembly as its Study/Action Issue. A detailed resource guide is available on the Web site of the Commission on Social Witness at http://www.uua.org/csw. Some of the materials referenced are:
• “20 Simple Steps to Reduce Global Warming,” from the Greenhouse Network, www.greenhousenet.org/action/20steps. html.
• The Green Sanctuary Program of the UUA Seventh Principle Project, which has activities for congregations in four areas: worship and celebration, religious education, environmental justice, and sustainable living. For more information, see www. uuaspp.org or contact the Rev. Katherine Jesch, Katherine.Jesch@ uuaspp.org, (703) 920-3615.
• The Fall 2004 issue of Yes! magazine—entitled “Can
We Live Without Oil?”—which is focused entirely on the issue
of climate change and its impact. See www.yesmagazine.org.
