Alternate Sources and Conservation of Energy

General Resolution

WHEREAS, the United States must, out of economic, ecological, and political necessity, develop alternate sources of energy and means of conserving energy; and

WHEREAS, the United States cannot continue to be dependent on oil, especially oil produced by OPEC; and

WHEREAS, the Union of Concerned Scientists, and other national groups, out of alarm over the dangers implicit in the use of nuclear energy, urge the development of solar energy;

BE IT RESOLVED: That the 1981 General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist Association urges all churches, fellowships and individuals to request their United States Representatives and Senators to legislate:

  1. Greater financial commitment to long-range basic research and development of solar and other alternate renewable sources of energy and means of conserving energy;
  2. The institution and support of educational programs at all levels in schools throughout the United States on alternate renewable sources of energy and means of conserving energy; and
  3. Greater financial incentives in the form of larger tax rebates to persons who adopt alternate sources of energy and/or means of conserving energy.
