Gov. Steve Beshear defends climate consultant
FRANKFORT, Ky. Gov. Steve Beshear Wednesday defended his administration's contract with a national climate consultant but said he's not decided whether to retain the consultant in the face of a legislative committee's objection.

Beshear said in an impromptu news conference that the $200,000 contract does not call for the Washington-based Center for Climate Strategies to make policy but rather to do administrative work for the Kentucky Climate Action Plan Council, which has been charged with developing a plan to address the causes and likely consequences of climate change.

Beshear stressed that the council has representatives of the coal industry as well as environmentalists and represents a cross-section of Kentucky.

It's not going to run off into the wilderness somewhere with some crazy ideas. It's very representative of what Kentucky's all about, Beshear said.
