In 2007 for the first time the global scientific community in the 2007 IPCC report agreed that the warming of the climate is ‘unequivocal’ and that this observed increase is due to anthropogenic GHG emissions. This statement has elevated climate change mitigation to one of high importance for the countries of the world to address. There is a growing interest in the US for quantifying and reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
