Minnesota governor signs executive order establishing Climate Change Subcabinet


Scientists from all over the world agree the climate is in a state of crisis — and while the Trump administration doesn't seem interested in declaring a national climate emergency anytime soon, local governments are stepping up to the plate. For example, Minnesota's Gov. Tim Walz signed an executive order to take action on the climate crisis on Monday, Dec. 2. Under the executive order, Minnesota is forming a Climate Change Subcabinet and a Governor’s Advisory Council on Climate Change, which will both work to reduce Minnesota's greenhouse gas emissions.

"By working collaboratively, we can build resilient communities, promote community prosperity, mitigate risk to our farms and businesses, and create a homegrown clean economy," Walz wrote in the executive order, which was shared on the governor's official website. "Currently, job growth in the clean energy sector is outpacing job growth in the overall economy. Continued leadership on climate change will position Minnesota for long-term economic success."
