A Wisconsin environmental leader is blasting an international plan approved Tuesday to attack global warming.
Leaders at the G8 summit voted in favor of cutting greenhouse gas emissions by 50-percent by the year 2050. That's far short of what's needed, says Steve Hiniker of 1,000 Friends of Wisconsin. As a result, change will need to come from the grass roots level. Hiniker says people are going to have to demand that government take more severe steps.
Hiniker is on a task force that's making recommendations to Governor Doyle on ways the state can combat global warming.
