A group Gov. Bill Walker appointed to address climate change is making some bold recommendations for the state.

Walker created the Climate Action for Alaska Commission through an administrative order in October to look into mitigating climate change in Alaska. A draft plan released by the 20-member panel earlier this month calls for a 30 percent reduction in Alaska's greenhouse gas emissions by 2025.

By that same year, the commission also recommends the state move to 50 percent renewable electricity sources, and increase its energy efficiency by 15 percent.

The commission must come up with a  final version of its preliminary action plan by September, according to Walker's order. 

The draft plan is open to public comment through June 4.
