Graphic of the week: U.S. CO2 sources and regional cap-and-trade agreements



Here is a map of U.S. CO2 sources (from the NETL carbon sequestration atlas) overlaid with the states which are participants/observers in) various regional GHG reduction initiatives. More information from the Pew Center on Global Climate Change. Briefly, the abbreviations in the figure are:
  1. WCI: Western Climate Initiative
  2. MGGA: Midwestern Greenhouse Gas Reduction Accord
  3. RGGI: Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative
In addition, through House Bill 7135, pending legislative approval, Florida's EPA will develop a GHG cap-and-trade program.
Note: Some provinces of Canada also participate in these agreements, however, they are not shown here.
