Suggestions for UU Climate Action in 2010 To UU Climate Coalition/National Climate Change Policy Leadership Team: 1.

Contact UU congregations nationwide to urge action now on climate legislation (contact Senators, acquaintances; write letters to the editor etc). 2. Stress that legislation should: 1. Include a price on carbon (tax or cap/trade) for utilities and large industry sufficient to achieve the Copenhagen Accord goals; 2. Leave intact more aggressive State programs; 3. Retain the regulatory authority of the EPA for provisions not covered by legislation. 3. Contact State Department negotiators to support and stress the importance of a FAB (Fair, Ambitious, Binding) climate treaty in Cancun in December 2010. 4. Learn responses to the fallacious contrarian arguments that are obstructing legislation and mitigation for climate change.
