Misconceptions in GHG accounting terminology

From Tim Stumhofer tim.stumhofer@ghginstitute.org

I’d like to draw your attention to a recent three-part blog series posted on the Greenhouse Gas Management Institute (GHGMI) website. The series, written on the theme of misconceptions in GHG accounting terminology, was authored by GHGMI Executive Director Michael Gillenwater and can be found at the following links:

“How do you explain additionality?”

“Getting ‘real’ about carbon offsets”
http://ghginstitute.org/2012/08/03/getting-real-about-real-carbon-offsets/

 “Additionality is assessed against a counterfactual. True or false?”
http://ghginstitute.org/2012/08/24/additionality-is-assessed-against-a-counterfactual-true-or-false/

We invite you to join the discussion in the comments section of these posts.
