Climate Action Reserve Organic Waste Digestion ProtocoL
Abstract: Organic Waste Digestion Project Protocol provides an accurate GHG accounting methodology for GHG reduction projects that divert and anaerobically digest eligible organic waste and/or wastewater streams that otherwise would have gone to uncontrolled anaerobic storage, treatment and disposal systems such as solid waste landfills or on-site anaerobic wastewater treatment facilities.

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.

Green Building for Cool Cities
Abstract: Re-energize your Cool City with our new "Green Building for Cool Cities" project in partnership with the U.S. Green Building Council. Making new and retrofitted buildings more energy-efficient is a key solution to global warming and to achieving the transition to a clean energy economy.

Ocean Acidification
Abstract: The ocean absorbs approximately 1/4 of the CO2 added to the atmosphere from human activities each year. When CO2 dissolves in seawater, acidification occurs, decreasing the ability of many marine organisms to build shells and maintain skeletal structure.

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

Overview and Examples of Climate Action Plans
Abstract: The President's Climate Commitment for colleges and universities, provides for coordinated planning to make campuses carbon-neutral, reduce global warming impacts, and drive the scientific innovation and public education necessary to catalyze rapid change.

U.S. EPA - PFC Reduction / Climate Partnership for the Semiconductor Industry
Abstract: EPA’s technical report describes PFC-based (perfluorinated compounds) heat transfer fluids, their common uses in electronics manufacturing, and estimated emissions to the atmosphere. PFCs are potent GHGs, often thousands of times stronger than CO2, and some can persist for 2,000 years.
