The UtiliTree Carbon Company, a nonprofit organization representing 40 electric companies, is funding forest projects expected to reduce atmospheric CO2 by the equivalent of more than 2 million tons over 40-100 years, at a cost of about $1 per ton. Two of the projects are located outside the U.S. in Malaysia and Belize; the other three are domestic.

"Canadian Energy Firm Looks to Offsets," ibid., pp. 1-3, June 28. An alliance of leading Canadian energy firms recently announced the formation of the Greenhouse Emissions Management Consortium (GEMCo) to manage carbon emission offset activities for participating companies. This development reflects a growing perception in the energy industry that the climate change issue is a source of business risk despite scientific uncertainty.
