A task force charged with developing a climate change action plan for New Hampshire is meeting for the first time today.
Governor John Lynch created the task force by executive order last year. It contains a cross section of state business leaders, lawmakers, agency heads, researchers and environmentalists.
He will speak at the first meeting this morning.
The group will recommend goals for the reduction of green house gas emissions in New Hampshire and specific actions the state can take to meet those goals. It is supposed to submit its plan to the governor by September.
Lynch also is urging state lawmakers to join a 10-state regional effort to cut greenhouse gas emissions.
