Re: [greenyes] Recycling efficiency & GHG savings
The August 2003 edition of Resource Recycling magazine will have a Recycling
in Cyberspace column that is devoted to Web accessible information resources
on the relationship between solid waste management practices and climate
change impacts.  A list of these Web sites will be posted to the Resource
Recycling Web site at:

http://www.resource-recycling.com/links.html

Two good starting points would be:

http://www.nrc-recycle.org/resources/ClimChange/ClimChange.htm
