Gov. Phil Murphy pledged to restore New Jersey to national leadership in fighting climate change, building a green economy and transitioning to 100 percent clean energy by 2050.
He has already taken some laudable steps. He brought New Jersey back into the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) to lower greenhouse emissions from electric power generation, and the Transportation and Climate Initiative (TCI) to lower emissions from the transport sector, which is the largest emitter of greenhouse gases, accounting for 40 percent of New Jersey’s emissions.
