In his weekly message, Governor Jack Markell drew attention to the threat of climate change and Delaware’s efforts to meet it.
"While reducing the effects of climate change is a global challenge, we must do our part in Delaware, and I’m proud of the progress we’re making," Markell said.
The governor highlighted Delaware’s investments in cleaner and more efficient energy production, as well as efforts to protect wetlands and improve flood prevention along the Delaware River and Bay.
He also encouraged Delawareans to contribute during the public comment period of the Climate Framework for Delaware released this week. The plan will seek, among other things, to significantly reduce carbon emissions in Delaware by 2030.
The public comment period on the Framework runs through May 30. More information on the proposal can be found at on the state's website.
