MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A new nonprofit organization in Wisconsin has been created to fight global warming.
Gov. Jim Doyle says the Wisconsin Climate Change Action Initiative will bring together leaders in business, government, advocacy organization and researchers to work on the issue.
Forming a nonprofit group like this was recommended by a Doyle task force that studied global warming.
Doyle says the group will work to increase voluntary conservancy practices that will save money and have a positive impact on the environment.
The group will focus on providing education, practical advice and expertise to residents, communities and businesses.
Initial funding for the group will come from a $5 million contribution from We Energies, Madison Gas & Electric and WPPI Energy.
