The Maryland Senate began preliminary discussions Friday on a sweeping climate action plan that calls for net-zero statewide greenhouse gas emissions by 2045. The Climate Solutions Now Act of 2021 aims to curtail Maryland’s global-warming pollution to 60% below 2006 levels by within the next decade by planting 5 million trees by 2030, electrifying the state government’s vehicle fleet and constructing more energy efficient school buildings, among other efforts.
