The UUA Statement of Conscience on Global Warming / Climate Change

The threat of Global Warming/Climate Change and what we can do is in the 2006 UUA Statement of Conscience Earth is our home. We are part of this world and its destiny is our own. Life on this planet will be gravely affected unless we act soon. All countries will be affected, developing countries most severely, but also including developed countries. There is no safe haven.

UUSC Environmental Justice

UUSC's Environmental Justice Program promotes and defends the human right to water.

Examining the Water Crisis and Climate Change

UUSC understands that there is a global water crisis, which is the product of shifting and competing political and economic interests, depletion from environmental contamination, climate change, over-extraction, and increasing human population. As a human-rights organization, UUSC recognizes the urgent need to respond. Climate justice is a central theme of UUSC's Environmental Justice work.
