Climate Action Council Subgroup Meetings

The Climate Action Council has agreed to form three subgroups to work through several issues in depth and bring what they feel could be consensus positions for the Council to consider. The subgroups are NOT decision-making bodies; all decisions will continue to be made at the Council level. Subgroup meeting summaries are posted below.
