EU Members Deny Reports of Surrender on ETS

Yesterday's story that the EC might be willing to back down from including aviation in its ETS has now received push back from EU Climate Commissioner Connie Hedegaard and representatives of France, Germany, Spain and the U.K. There is clearly some dissent among politicians and industry actors within the EU over how to proceed in regard to this highly fraught international standoff. Current law includes international aviation in the EU ETS and today's comments make clear that there does not yet exist a consensus in support of a legal change.
