The Governor's Task Force on Global Warming is offering some early suggestions for reducing Wisconsin's greenhouse gas emissions.
Task force co-chair Tia Nelson says members felt there was no need to wait for some of their recommendations to be released, as they work to complete their full report. The panel offered a number of environmental suggestions Tuesday, which Nelson says include issues members have already reached agreement on.
Those suggestions include having state agencies implement greenhouse gas reduction strategies, and creating uniform standards for wind power. The panel also calls for the state to study the potential of wind farms along the Great Lakes. It also seeks legislation requiring rental properties to install energy efficient lighting in common areas.
Nelson says they are still examining other issues, such as transportation. Those will be addressed in a final report due from the Task Force in May.
