Late last week the Minnesota Climate Change Advisory Group (MCCAG) outlined a climate change action plan that would limit greenhouse gas emissions by 80% below 2005 levels by 2050. The plan focuses on the use of biofuels as well as energy conservation and efficiency and calls for 30% of energy to come from renewables by 2030. The plan also addresses coal and CCS and would require all new coal gasification or coal combustion plants in Minnesota to be built with carbon capture and storage technology by 2020. The plan would also establish a cap and trade program.
