This review evaluates the extent to which the EPA¿s Greenhouse Gas (GHG) voluntary programs can significantly reduce future GHG emissions, and whether their data is complete and reliable. The set of voluntary GHG programs reviewed use outreach efforts to recruit program partners and reduce GHG emissions. The greatest barriers to participation were the perceived emission reduction costs and reporting requirements. It is unlikely that these voluntary programs can reduce more than 19% of the projected 2010 GHG emissions for their industry sectors. If EPA wishes to reduce GHG emissions beyond thi

Since the end of the Cold War , the U.S. Navy has reduced its active military forces by about 28% & has plans to further reduce its personnel to help modernize a smaller but more capable force. In 1996, pay & allowances for active duty Navy personnel was $17 billion, or about 25% of the Navy's obligational authority. This report examines the size & composition of Navy active duty forces between Ô89 & Ô99, the navy's plan to achieve its FY 1099 active duty force goal & initiatives that could further reduce forces beyond the planned FY 1999 level, & the Navy's processes for determining active

Earthquakes have caused massive death and destruction, and potentially damaging earthquakes are certain to occur in the future. Although earthquakes are uncontrollable, the losses they cause can be reduced by building structures that resist earthquake damage, matching land use to risk, developing emergency response plans, and other means. Since 1977, the federal government has had a research oriented program to reduce earthquake losses the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program (NEHRP). This program has made significant contributions toward improving our understanding of earthquakes and

Collaboration between the fed. govżt. and the aviation industry has led to reductions in aviation emissions (AE), but growing air traffic has partially offset these reductions. Various fed. agencies are working to increase the efficiency, safety, and capacity of the nat. airspace system and at the same time reduce AE, in part, by transforming the current air traffic control system to the Next Generation Air Transp. System (NextGen). This effort involves new technologies and air traffic procedures that can reduce AE and incorporates R&D on emissions-reduction technologies. This testimony addre
