Preliminary Estimates of Region's Greenhouse Gas Emissions Released

Established in April as one of the nation's first regional bodies to address climate change locally, COG's Climate Change Steering Committee is working to measure local greenhouse gas emissions and their impact on the region. At its bi-monthly meeting in September, members reviewed preliminary estimates of emissions caused by electricity, vehicles, residential and commercial fuel use, airplanes and other local sources. The inventory will help guide the committee as it establishes a reduction goal for the region and identifies best practices for local governments.
