The state is on a path to meet its goals to reduce greenhouse-gas pollution by 2020, but achieving its ambitious 2050 targets will take much more work, according to an updated inventory of those emissions by the Rutgers Climate Institute and Rutgers Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy..
Tom Johnson reports today in NJ Spotlight that:
"Theis the first prepared by the institute and Bloustein. It focuses on greenhouse-gas emissions in 2012. It shows that New Jersey is ahead of its 2020 target of reducing emissions by 20 percent from 1990 levels, a point frequently made by the Christie administration.
"But achieving an 80 percent reduction by 2050 from 2006 levels will be much more difficult to attain, according to the study."
