On June 2, Gov. Roy Cooper and the Department of Environmental Quality released the state’s first climate change resilience plan. The plan will help the state develop policies to protect against damage from climate impacts like more frequent and severe storms and flooding.
The plan will build on Cooper’s existing Executive Order 80, which directs steps to reduce carbon emissions and prepare for a changed climate. Environmental Defense Fund blogger Will McDow discusses strategies which could help make this plan work here.
Tell Gov. Cooper and DEQ you support their Clean Energy Plan which also resulted from EO 80.
