Earlier this week Colorado Governor Ritter proposed his climate change plan for Colorado. The plan calls for a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions of 20 percent by 2020 and 80 percent by 2050. The plan also calls for an expansion of renewable energy opportunities. It seeks partnerships with research institutions and industry to develop clean coal technologies well as help from the federal government for clean coal development. The governor's plan proposes that farmers sequester carbon and reduce emissions on agricultural lands, as well as sell the carbon credits across a multistate region.
