Global Warming/Climate Change

As global warming/climate change is resulting in more extreme weather—drought in some areas and flooding in others—poorer peoples and communities of color are often the most affected by these disasters even though they contribute the least to their causes. Our Unitarian Universalist (UU) spiritual values call us to act on the personal, local, and national levels to adopt practices that will reverse global warming/climate change, and to do so in ways that are just and equitable.

Delegates at the General Assembly in St. Louis, MO, approved the Threat of Global Warming/Climate Change as a 2006 Statement of Conscience.

  • Science of Global Climate Change Policy
    A basic introduction to the cause of global climate change and what is necessary to reverse it.
  • The Injustice of Global Climate Change
    A brief explanation of why global climate change is a social justice issue.

The UU-UNO Climate Change Task Force is dedicated to advocacy of mitigating the increasingly severe risks of climate change. The web portal contains a wealth of climate resource information and action suggestions relevant to Unitarian Universalists.

  • Mitigation—actions to decrease the scope of climate change
  • Adaptation—actions to help vulnerable communities cope with the effects of climate change
