The U.S. Climate Change Technology Program.

The U.S. Congress passed the Energy Policy Act in 1992. Title XVI, Section 1605(b), of this legislation directed the Department of Energy to develop voluntary accounting rules and guidelines to reduce, avoid, or sequester greenhouse gases. The Secretary of Energy established a Cabinet-level Committee on Climate Change Science and Technology Integration, and included the Secretary of the Interior. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service represents the Secretary of the Interior on a subcommittee – the Interagency Working Group on Climate Change Science and Technology – charged with pursuing a broad range of strategies to address the important issues of global climate change.
