What are global warming potentials and is Laughing gas really a serious GHG? What is the current regulatory framework (Federal and Washington State)? What is the voluntary market? Who has to report, where to report, and what to report? Cap and Trade or Carbon Tax, and what is the WCI? What is a GHG inventory and how to develop it? What are Scopes and how this avoids double counting? What does Carbon Neutrality really mean? What are Offsets, how they work and are they valid? What International Standards are applicable to GHGs? Verification and Validation is 3rd party assurance, but why add this expense to yearly reporting and is it required?
