The North Carolina Climate Action Plan Advisory Group
presented 56 recommendations to the state Legislature yesterday on how to
develop a global warming plan to reduce greenhouse gasses.
recommendations include improving the efficiency of government buildings and
cutting automobile tailpipe emissions. Adopting all of the recommendations, the
panel said, would return the state to 1990 levels of greenhouse gas emissions
within 13 years, reducing projected emissions to nearly half what they would be
if no action is taken. A final report will be submitted to lawmakers by the end
of the year.
