The Michigan Climate Action Council was established by Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm, with representatives from industry, academia, and the policy making community.[citation needed]

The Council will be charged with:[citation needed]

  • Producing an inventory and forecast of greenhouse gas sources and emissions from 1990-2020;
  • Considering potential state and multi-state actions to mitigate and adapt to climate change in various sectors including energy supply, energy efficiency and conservation, industrial process and waste management, transportation and land use, and agriculture and forestry;
  • Developing a comprehensive climate action plan with specific recommendations for reducing greenhouse gases in Michigan by business, government and the general public; and
  • Advising state and local government on measures to address climate change.

The Climate Action Council made its first report to the Governor in April of 2008, and will complete its final report and recommendations as of December 31, 2008.[citation needed]
