Resolution in Support of the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act:

Whereas the Sustainable Living committee proposed the following resolution to be voted on and agreed to by the congregation of UUS:E; and

Whereas the UUS:E Policy board reviewed and approved the proposed resolution.

Therefore, it is resolved, on this 10th day of May 2019, that the Unitarian Universalist Society: East supports the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act, and encourages our members of Congress to endorse and support its passage. This endorsement is public and shows our desire for a speedy, comprehensive, and lasting national solution that will quickly bring down carbon and other greenhouse gas emissions and stimulate the transition to a clean energy economy with dividends to all Americans that will especially help low and middle-income families. We do this to stop the ever-growing crisis from climate change and to provide a livable planet for our children and future generations and for all life as we know it on this planet.
