Abstract:

Global warming poses a serious threat to New Jersey's future. The state has already begun to respond to the problem, but additional action is needed if New Jersey is going to do its share to prevent the worst impacts of global warming, like inundation of parts of the Jersey Shore from rising seas. A Blueprint for Action describes 11 policy steps that, if taken, would reduce the state's global warming emissions to 6 percent below 2005 levels by 2020.
