Summary:
As the United States moves to a low-carbon economy in order to combat global warming, credits for reducing carbon dioxide emissions will increasingly become a commodity that is bought and sold on the open market. This is a how-to-manual for farmers, traders, and investors who want to participate in future carbon markets.--[book cover].
