Three Actions to Support the Carbon Dividend Act
The General Synod of the United Church of Christ, in June 2019, voted in favor of a resolution to support the “Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act of 2019.” This Act has been introduced into the U. S. House of Representatives as H. R. 763. Citizen’s Climate Lobby has created a website to provide information about the Act.
Each UCC church is asked to support the Act with the following actions:
- Study the problems created by climate change. Invite a climate scientist to your church or form a book group to read a climate change primer like Joseph Romm’s Climate Change: What Everyone Needs to Know.
- Study the benefits of the Act in reducing fossil carbon pollution and thus climate change, helping the poor, spurring the economy, and bridging the partisan divide.
- Encourage each member of Congress to support the Act. Send a message now to those who respresent you.
