      (1)  methane  emissions  from  biogenic  sources  such  as  (A)

   tropical, temperate,  and subarctic forests,  (B) tundra, and  (C)

   freshwater and saltwater wetlands; and

      (2) the changes in methane emissions from biogenic sources that

   may occur as a result  of potential increases in  temperatures and

   atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide.

   (e)   Study   of    Measures   To   Limit   Growth    in   Methane

Concentrations.-Not later  than 2  years after the  completion of  the

studies  in subsections  (b), (c),  and (d),  the  Administrator shall

prepare  and submit  to the  Congress a  report that  presents options

outlining measures that  could be  implemented to stop  or reduce  the

growth in  atmospheric concentrations  of methane from  sources within

the  United  States  referred to  in  paragraphs  (1)  through (6)  of

subsection (b). This  study shall identify and  evaluate the technical

options for reducing  methane emissions  from each  of the  activities

listed  in  subsection (b),  as well  as  other activities  or sources

deemed  by such  agencies  to be  significant,  and shall  include  an

evaluation of  costs, technology,  safety, energy, and  other factors.

The study shall be based on  the other studies under this section. The

study  shall  also  identify  programs   of  the  United  States   and

international  lending agencies  that could be  used to  induce lesser

developed  countries to  undertake measures  that will  reduce methane

emissions and the resource needs of such programs.

   (f) Information Gathering.-In carrying out the  studies under this

section, the provisions and  requirements of section 114 of  the Clean

Air  Act shall be available  for purposes of  obtaining information to

carry out such studies.

   (g)  Consultation and Coordination.-In preparing the studies under

this section the Administrator shall  consult and coordinate with  the

Secretary of  Energy, the  Administrators of the  National Aeronautics

and  Space Administration  and  the National  Oceanic and  Atmospheric

Administration, and the heads of other relevant

Federal agencies and  departments. In  the case of  the studies  under

subsections  (a), (b),  and  (e), such  consultation and  coordination

shall include the Secretary of Agriculture.
