Non-profit group Kentuckians for the Commonwealth is crowd-sourcing ideas for a state plan to reduce carbon dioxide emissions.

They’re doing this as federal carbon dioxide regulations are on hold, while Kentucky and other states challenge the rule in court. State regulators say they’ll wait to get public input on a plan until litigation is over.

About 200 people gathered for dinner and conversation Tuesday night in Louisville. They talked about personal experiences, as well as the challenges Kentucky’s energy landscape faces and their vision for the future.
