Coalition hopes recommendations come with action

The Climate Change Coalition of Door County believes the release of a task force report from the state will lead to meaningful action down the road. 

 

The Governor’s Task Force on Climate Change released its final report last week, which included 55 recommendations to help combat its impact. Some of those recommendations include additional funding for farmers to adopt more sustainable practices, enacting policies to promote public transportation, and reducing carbon emissions and food waste. The task force, chaired by Lt. Governor Mandela Barnes, was made up of a bipartisan collection of legislators, farmers, environmentalists, tribal leaders, and business community members. Climate Change Coalition of Door County Coordinator Nicole Matson is encouraged by the report and hopes it turns into action.

The Capital Times in Madison suggests some of the recommendations could be implemented as items in next year’s budget or by executive order, they could also be stripped out and not considered again.
