State panel makes recommendations to fight global warming

RALEIGH (AP) -- A panel advising the state Legislature on ways to develop a global warming plan to reduce greenhouse gases has made more than 50 recommendations. They include improving the efficiency of government buildings and cutting automobile tailpipe emissions. The N.C. Climate Action Plan Advisory Group says adopting all 56 recommendations would return the state to 1990 levels of greenhouse gas emissions within 13 years. The 43-member group says adopting their plan would cut projected emissions to nearly half what they would be if no action is taken. The panel expects to submit its final report to lawmakers by the end of the year. (Copyright 2007 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
