Climate Forward: A New Road Map for Wisconsin’s Climate and Energy Future

Climate Forward: A New Road Map for Wisconsin’s Climate and Energy Future

Climate Forward report cover1000 Friends contributed to the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences Arts & Letters report – Climate Forward: A New Road Map for Wisconsin’s Climate and Energy Future

In mid-2012, the Wisconsin Academy initiated a project to examine Wisconsin’s climate and energy future. The fruit of this project is Climate Forward: A New Road Map for Wisconsin’s Climate and Energy Future, a report that identifies five “pathways to progress” to reduce Wisconsin’s  dependence on fossil fuels, support sustainable energy sources, and create jobs and increase investment in the new 21st century economy.

The report also profiles Wisconsin businesses, communities, and individuals in the vanguard of energy innovation and other sustainability practices, and outlines dozens of options for action at many scales, from establishing goals for incremental progress in improving energy efficiency across the state each year to expanding renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, and bioenergy to levels comparable to neighboring states.
