Re: [GreenYes] seeking global warming info
Melissa,

You might try the following sources as starting points.  The EPA stuff
below is on their web site which by the way has a section devoted to
climate change and global warming (http://www.epa.gov/globalwarming/).
Check out the Office of Solid Waste (http://www.epa.gov/osw/) while you are
there.  Then go to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change
(http://www.ipcc.ch/).

US Environmental Protection Agency. (2001). Non-CO2 Greenhouse Gas
Emissions from Developed Countries: 1990-2010. Washington, D.C., US
Environmental Protection Agency: 132.

US Environmental Protection Agency. (1998). Greenhouse Gas Emissions From
Management of Selected Materials in Municipal Solid Waste. Washington,
