(WBNG) -- Pennsylvania officials announced new plans to counteract the impacts of climate change on their state on Wednesday.
The three-step plan will include the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by creating a carbon-free electrical grid that uses renewable and nuclear energy.
Officials also want to increase industrial energy efficiency along with encouraging the use of more electric vehicles.
Since the start of the twentieth century, the state of Pennsylvania has warmed by more than two degrees Fahrenheit. Similar to other states across the northeast, Pennsylvania has experienced an increase in heat waves and severe flooding over the past few decades.
