Maine has a plan to fight climate change; now comes the hard part

David Thill of Energy News Network reports that Maine has announced a plan to fight climate change.

The C3 Take

Maine’s newest plan to combat climate change includes a renewable energy standard and investments in energy efficiency. What the plan does not include, but should, are investments in nuclear energy. Nuclear energy is safe, reliable, and does not emit carbon.

“The council approved the plan, which includes more than 50 proposed policies and goals, at a Nov. 12 meeting with stakeholders. Council members wrote it based on recommendations by six working groups that met beginning last year and focused on issues like energy, transportation, building efficiency and natural resources. Now that the body of the plan is set, the council — which includes lawmakers and executive branch members, as well as nonprofit representatives and municipal leaders from across the state — will make minor language changes and package the report.”
