China Challenges EU ETS

China's three major international airlines, acting under the auspices of the China Air Transport Association, plan to challenge the legality of the European Union's plans to bring aviation under its Emissions Trading Scheme in 2012.  See China Airlines to Challenge EU Carbon Tax: Report, AFP, Mar. 24, 2011 (available here).  If the suit goes forward, it will be the second such challenge to the ETS.  U.S. air carriers, acting through the Air Transport Association of America, filed suit in the United Kingdom last year.
