This Plan identifies the types of programs, polices and measures the United
States is taking to address the issue of global climate change. As such, it is
merely representative of the variety of actions the United States is taking to
address the issue of global climate change. As such, it is merely
representative of the variety of actions the United States has undertaken. It is
not--nor could it truly be--an exhaustive list of all measures.

This document does not seek to identify of recommend additional policies
and measures that might be taken. In this sense, this document and the
process in which it has been prepared are not intended to be substitutes for
existing or future decision-making processes, whether administrative or
legislative, or for additional voluntary initiative developed by or with the
private sector. Rather, the compendium of actions identified in this
document should assist in measuring and evaluating existing policies and
measures and in establishing a basis for considering future actions.
