How effective will Minnesota 2030 really be?

Tony Angelo notes on minn-Donkey that the college's Center for Sustainable Building Research (CSBR) is deeply involved with implementation of the Minnesota Sustainable Building 2030 law. The law requires that all new and renovated buildings that receive state funding be designed and built to progressively reduce fossil fuel inputs so as to be carbon neutral by 2030.

Angelo analyzes the problems inherent in the voluntary compliance and patchwork nature of the state's legislation.
