COP21 Paris Climate Conference blogs and comments

Lynn and I are here and got our credentials at the COP21 registration desk. People of many faiths who have been working on climate for years will be at the Conference, among the estimated 40,000 participants. We and others will be blogging here and also on the Climate Portal: http://climate.uu-uno.org/topics/view/5650b4dc0cf2c2f3bc830ffd/ plus blogging on the UUs in Paris Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/groups/uusinparis/ . Rev. Peggy Clarke and Jan will be on a panel side event on Sat. Dec. 5 called "Examination of how nations have and should consider equity and justice in setting INDCs" An INDC is the commitment made by a country for emissions reductions/control. We are looking forward to seeing other UUs. Here is a photo Lynn took at the site:

    We’re planning to meet with other UUs Thursday, when Doris ,Marlin arrives at COP I meantime I’m looking for how discussion about global issues gives specific impetus for UU action, such as tying in to the Sustainable Development Goals and the Green Climate Fund. Both help the most vulnerable of Earth’s people and all related to climate change.
    Looking forward to multifaith worship service tomorrow

    I’m glad to have “Unitarian Universalist Association” on our badges. Thanks to all in the UUA and UU United Nations office who made this possible especially the initiative and thorough detail work of intern Jen Caplan who even managed to get 2 UUs on an official panel in a crowded field. ( Rev Peggy Clarke & Dr. Jan Dash). Lots of paperwork and deadlines to meet!
