The Global Warming Solutions Act (GWSA) of 2008 created a framework for reducing heat-trapping emissions to levels that scientists believe give us a decent chance of avoiding the worst effects of global warming. It requires reductions from all sectors of the economy to reach a target of a 25 percent reduction of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions by 2020 and an 80 percent reduction by 2050.
