Abstract

The Pennsylvania Climate Change Act (Act 70 of 2008, or Act) provides for a report on potential climate change impacts and economic opportunities for the Commonwealth. The Act requires the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) to develop an inventory of greenhouse gases (GHG) and administer a Climate Change Advisory Committee (CCAC), a voluntary registry of GHG emissions and a Climate Change Action Plan. Revisions to the Action Plan are required every three years. This document is the second update to the original Climate Change Action Plan that was issued by DEP in December 2009.
