Maryland Commission on Climate Change Report

Maryland is a signatory to the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) along with 12 other Northeastern states. The Maryland Commission on Climate Change (MCCC) wants to cap greenhouse gas emissions with a 90% reduction by 2050. The MCCC was created by Governor Martin O'Malley and includes state legislators, agency heads and environmentalists.

The draft report calls for reducing emission by 15 percent below the 2006 level by 2015. Virginia is considering reducing greenhouse gases by 30 percent by 2030.
