Avoided Emissions from Organic Waste Disposal Offset Project Protocol
Abstract: outlines the process and requirements for Project Proponents to register greenhouse gas emission reductions resulting from voluntarily avoiding emissions from organic waste in landfills

Climate Action Reserve Landfill Protocol and Landfill Verification Protocols U.S.
Abstract: The Landfill Project Protocol provides guidance to quantify, report, and verify GHG emission reductions associated with installing a landfill gas collection and destruction system at landfill operations. The protocol was first adopted by the Reserve Board

Creating Economic Incentives to Conserve Forests Through REDD [PDF]
Abstract: This report discusses economic incentives around Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD). REDD is a policy approach to mitigate carbon emissions from deforestation and conserve tropical biodiversity.

Effects of Global Warming on Trout and Salmon in U.S. Streams [ [PDF]
Abstract: Dams, water diversions, pollution, and development threaten trout and salmon, which have already disappeared from many of the streams they once inhabited. Climatic warming poses an additional, potentially severe threat to their survival.

Feedback Loops In Global Climate Change Point To A Very Hot 21st Century
Abstract: Studies have shown that global climate change can set-off positive feedback loops in nature which amplify warming and cooling trends.

Methane Avoidance from Composting
Abstract: Developing a GHG reduction project protocol for organic waste composting projects will provide a standardized approach for quantifying and monitoring GHG reductions from projects that avoid methane emissions through the diversion and composting of municipal food waste that would otherwise have been sent to a landfill.

Office Carbon Footprint Tool Calculator (WasteWise)
Abstract: This tool was created for office-based organizations ("offices") located in the United States to assist offices in making decisions to reduce their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with their activities. This tool will allow the user to develop an estimate of their GHG emissions from a variety of sources including company-owned vehicle transportation; purchased electricity; waste disposal; and leased assets, franchises, and outsourced activities
