Gov. Tim Walz and Lt. Gov. Peggy Flanagan held a press conference in March to announce major energy and climate policy initiatives. Walz announced Monday that he will create a "climate change subcabinet" to advise him on cutting the state's carbon footprint.

With Minnesota years behind on its goals to cut greenhouse gas emissions, Gov. Tim Walz announced Monday that he will create a "climate change subcabinet" to advise him on cutting the state's carbon footprint.

The subcabinet, which will include members of every state department, will be asked to help Minnesota catch up to emission targets set more than a decade ago while finding ways to make everything from roads and stormwater pipes to crops and topsoil more resilient to extreme weather and rising temperatures.
