An Alaska climate change panel is recommending the state reduce its greenhouse emissions by 30 percent from levels reached in 2005. It’s part of a sweeping report featuring dozens of recommendations forwarded to Gov. Bill Walker on Wednesday.

Walker’s team rolled out the 38-page report at the University of Alaska, about 10 months after he first assembled a 21-person climate change group.

Walker’s broader mission is to hold down high energy costs while developing a less carbon-intensive economy. He wants to achieve this, in part, through improved technology, academic research and programs to upgrade commercial, public and residential buildings.
