Green energy has made big strides in Michigan over the past several years. That’s thanks in large part to a 2008 law that required the state to get 10% of its energy from renewable sources by 2015.

The “10 by 2015” mandate is about to expire...and the state is on track to meet its goal.

But what happens next? Can Michigan continue its move toward renewables? Or will efforts to green the energy industry stall without a legislative mandate?

The incident has triggered an advisory from a group of Michigan naturalists of the risk of an encounter with this species of snake in our state.
