[GreenYes] Re: [CRRA] New Incentive for landfilling organics proposed


I didn't see where to send the comments?  I realize time is short, but it would be great if the TC could develop and share a sample letter that could be duplicated and sent. 
 
Thanks

Draft Recommendations of the Market Advisory Committee
On Friday June 1, the AB32 Market Advisory Committee released a draft report outlining a proposed cap-and-trade system under AB 32. The report recommended that methane emissions from landfills be excluded from complying with a cap, while still allowing landfill operators to obtain carbon credits for the energy they produce. This would result in an increased financial incentive for landfilling organic materials and the under-regulation of the largest anthropogenic source of methane, a potent greenhouse gas.

Please note in the attached e-mail the Draft Recommendations of the Market Advisory Committee.  This report would be an incentive for landfills to keep on landfilling/ADCing organic matter.  They would not be held accountable for methane that escapes, yet reap the benefits of carbon credits for methane retrieved.

There is a public hearing tomorrow:

I believe that it is important that our voice will be heard.  We do not need more incentives for organic matter to be siphoned away from composting operations.
