Gov. Tim Walz and Lt. Gov. Flanagan held a press conference to announce major energy and climate policy initiatives on March 4, 2019. Walz first announced the formation of a climate subcabinet a year ago in an effort to get Minnesota back on track to meet its carbon reduction targets.

Gov. Tim Walz's new Advisory Council on Climate Change will hold its first meeting this week as the state redoubles efforts to hit its targets for cutting greenhouse gas emissions.

The meeting, from noon to 4 p.m. Monday, will be livestreamed on YouTube.

Walz appointed the 15 members of the citizen council in September to advise his new Climate Change Subcabinet, a body headed by Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) Commissioner Laura Bishop. The council's 15 members include farmers, academics, utility executives, tribal officials and others. They're tasked with finding innovative ways for the state to meet its emissions reduction targets and to adapt to changes.
