Well it would be nice to know how they plan to do all this, but these certainly are ballsy goals out of New Jersey:
• Reduce greenhouse gases to 1990 levels by 2020 (a 13 percent drop) and 80 percent below current levels by 2050.
• Regulators have one year to measure current and 1990 emissions and recommend a plan for meeting the 2020 goal. By 2010, they must have a plan for reaching the 2050 target.
• To protect electric suppliers, the state will adopt measures to keep customers from buying power from out-of-state producers who don’t face greenhouse limits.
• An independent review panel will assess the economic, ecological and social impacts of the cuts.
It passed by an enormous margin, too: 72-8 in the Assembly, 36-1 in the Senate.
