Short summary:

The EPA has created a report on the United State's portion of Greenhouse gas sources. But they forgot to mention that reducing our consumption of manufactured products is crucial and that we also have to look at our imports of products manufactered abroad. Please sign on to the Product Policy Institute's petition:

http://www.productpolicy.org/s…..s-analysis

The petition asks the EPA to:

1) Incorporate "systems-based" greenhouse accounting

2) Explain that the US also contributes to emissions that are counted in the inventories of other nations, as a consequence of imports.

3) Portray results using both 100-year, and 20-year Global Warming Potentials

Read more about the report here and sign on as a concerned citizen:
