The New Hampshire Climate Action Plan, commissioned by order of the Governor, was released on March 25, 2009. The Climate Change Task Force recommends that New Hampshire endeavor to achieve long-term greenhouse gas emissions reductions of 80% below 1990 levels by 2050. Based on the greenhouse gas emission reductions projected for the recommended actions, the Task Force has chosen a mid-term goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions 20% below 1990 levels by 2025. In order to achieve this goal, there are 67 actions laid out in the plan that:
- Reduce greenhouse gas emissions from buildings, electric generation, and transportation.
- Protect our natural resources to maintain the amount of carbon sequestered.
- Support regional and national initiatives to reduce greenhouse gases.
- Develop an integrated education, outreach and workforce training program.
- Adapt to existing and potential climate change impacts.
