Elevated levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere and the resulting effects on the earth's climate could have significant impacts in the U.S. and internationally. The U.S. Congress is considering proposals to limit greenhouse gas emissions using market-based mechanisms that would place a price on emissions. A greenhouse gas mitigation program requires an understanding of the emissions sources of 6 major greenhouse gases -- carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, and several synthetic gases. This testimony focuses on: (1) the importance of quality data on emissions in the context of a progr

In 2008, agricultural greenhouse gas sources accounted for about 6% of total U.S. greenhouse gas emissions. The U.S. Agriculture and Forestry Greenhouse Gas Inventory: 1990-2008 was developed to provide a comprehensive assessment of the contribution of U.S. agriculture and forestry to greenhouse gas emissions and carbon sequestration. It provides extensive, in-depth emissions and sinks estimates for livestock, cropland, and forests, as well as energy consumption in livestock and cropland agriculture. Estimates are provided at State, regional, and national scales, categorized by land ownership

The EPAżs promulgation of an żendangerment findingż for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Dec. 2009, and its subsequent promulgation of GHG emission standards for new motor vehicles on April 1, 2010, have raised concerns that the agency will now proceed to control GHG emissions from stationary sources, incl. power plants,manufacturing facilities, and others. Stationary sources account for 69% of U.S. emissions of greenhouse gases. Some have suggested that EPA should delay taking action on these sources or should be prevented from doing so. This report discusses elements of this controversy,

Because of concerns about changes in Earth¿s climate due to greenhouse gas emissions & the potential economic & environmental consequences of these changes, this report: (1) inventoried greenhouse gas emissions generated by legislative branch operations in FY 2006, as well as identified trends in emissions starting from a base year of the average annual amount emitted in FY 1998 through 2001; & (2) identified a strategy for reducing emissions. To perform this work, the author followed the Greenhouse Gas Protocol & additional guidance from the Environmental Protection Agency, using data provid

Human activities around the world are producing increasingly large quantities of greenhouse gases, particularly carbon dioxide (CO2) resulting from the consumption of fossil fuels and deforestation. A comprehensive response to that problem would include a collection of strategies: research to better understand the scientific processes at work and to develop technologies to address them; measures to help the economy and society adapt to the projected warming and other expected changes; and efforts to reduce emissions. This report discusses the economic costs of reducing greenhouse-gas emissions

Greenhouse gas emissions trading and project-based mechanisms for greenhouse gas reduction are emerging market-based instruments for climate change policy. They are also increasingly viewed as cost-effective, flexible and environmentally efficient instruments for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Experience in the application of these instruments is rapidly developing. While OECD countries are at the forefront of these developments, there is also much activity in transition and developing economies.  This book presents a selection of papers from an international workshop co-sponsored by the
