The City of West Lafayette Common Council will debate a resolution Monday to reduce carbon emissions and increase use of renewable energy sources.

The plan calls to reduce carbon emissions by twenty percent, with an additional twenty percent drop every four years thereafter.

“We’re now getting to the point where we’re ruining out oxygen," Mayor John Dennis says. "We’re sort of changing the way the weather works.”
