JS Online: State, U.K. may deal on climate
In a statement released during his overseas trip, Gov. Jim Doyle said he met with two British environmental policy-makers to discuss a potential memorandum of understanding between the United Kingdom and Wisconsin on climate-change issues.
The United Kingdom has similar agreements in place with California - the first state to pass a law requiring reduced greenhouse gas emissions - and Florida.
Doyle's office said the agreement would encourage collaboration between Wisconsin and the United Kingdom in researching and sharing new technologies as well as efforts to educate the public on global climate issues.
