Gov. Jim Gibbons, R-Nev., has received the final report from his Nevada Climate Change Advisory Committee and a briefing from committee members outlining key recommendations.

The committee, which was created through an executive order from Gibbons in 2007, was charged with making "recommendations by which greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions can be further reduced in Nevada, including the use of renewable energy resources."

The governor applauded the work of the committee, which evaluated 63 recommendations before reaching consensus on 28 ideas. The recommendations are grouped into six sections: electricity consumption, residential/commercial/industrial, transportation, waste management, agriculture and "other."

"I'm delighted this group of people, representing a diverse array of interests, was able to get together and accomplish what I asked of them," says Gibbons. "I'm determined to reduce the amount of GHG emissions we generate here in Nevada, and I look forward to reviewing this report and its recommendations for how to accomplish this goal."
