EU Backing Off on Aviation Carbon Permits

EU Climate Commissioner Connie Hedegaard just announced that the EU will refrain from enforcing the new rules for international aviation requiring carbon emission permits for a part of international flights for one year.

Hedegaard says there is a chance for an international solution now, so the EU will back off as a sign of good will.

I guess that means it will take another year or two until this blows up into an international trade war grounding American airlines.
