[Saturday, December 19, 2009]

 On behalf of Governor Edward G. Rendell, Secretary Hanger announces that on December 18, 2009, the Department of Environmental Protection (Department) released Pennsylvania's Climate Change Action Plan (Plan) which includes the public comment and re- sponse document. A copy of the Plan can be found at 1532&q=539829.

 Pennsylvania is responsible for 1% of the planets human-made greenhouse emissions. On July 9, 2008, Governor Rendell signed the Pennsylvania Climate Change Act (Act 70). One of the mandates of the Act 70 was the preparation of this report. Working with the Climate Change Advisory Committee the Department has prepared this Climate Change Action Report. The report identifies 52 specific actions that would result in 84.6 Million Metric Tons of Carbon Dioxide Equivalent (MMtCO2e) reduction of Pennsylvania's greenhouse gas emissions by 2020.
