WNC Sierra Club: Understanding NC’s Carbon Reduction Plan

February 2 @ 7:00 pm

In October 2021, the North Carolina General Assembly passed and Governor Cooper signed a new energy bill into law – HB 951. The new law called on the North Carolina Utilities Commission (NCUC) to develop a carbon plan for the state by the end of 2022 that would reduce carbon dioxide emissions to 70% below 2005 levels by 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. On Dec. 30, the NCUC released the plan after many months and extensive public comment. There are many components to this carbon reduction plan and it is important for the people of North Carolina to know the details and understand the climate implications. You’re invited to WNC Sierra Club’s presentation, Understanding NC’s Carbon Reduction Plan, on Thursday, February 2nd at 7 pm, with Mikaela Curry, Campaign Representative for the Club’s Beyond Coal Campaign in the Carolinas. She is a published writer, community organizer and environmental scientist with a wide range of experiences across Central Appalachia and the South.
