We invite representatives from Social Action groups from individual congregations to post articles about UU climate or energy related activities and other topics of interest. For information about posting, please see this: Illustrative Resource for Posting. Also send a message HERE if you want to write an article.
For example, here are actions on climate taken by the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Monmouth County, New Jersey (UUCMC).
The UUCMC established a Climate Change Action Team. Its first action was a "Counter the Contrarians" series of three classes to learn how to respond to fallacious climate contrarian arguments, which are obstructing a sound climate policy in the US.
These classes lead to formulation of the "one-liner" responses to contrarian fallacies, now posted on the popular website skepticalscience.com.
The Social Action Committee recently passed THIS resolution against the Clean Energy budget cuts in New Jersey.
The UUCMC participated in the UUA's 40/40/40ethical eating initiative, and this was reported in the local press in an big article with pictures.
The UUCMC installed solar panels on the roof a few years ago. Temperature control is used for energy conservation.
HERE is a report of the UUCMC Seventh Generation project.
Below is the stained-glass Earth Window in the UUCMC sanctuary:
