The New Jersey 2050 Plan

New Jersey has released the draft of its green house gas reduction plan for 2020 and 2050: http://www.state.nj.us/globalwarming/home/stakeholder.html .
“The 2050 limit – reduce emissions to a level 80 percent below 2006 emission levels … represents the emission level necessary to avoid the worse potential effects from climate change. … Citizens of New Jersey will have to govern, work and live much differently than we do now, with an emphasis on smarter and greater efficiency. The existing and conventional policies, practices, behaviors, and technologies that brought us to the current problems will obviously not lead to their solutions.”
