The article reports that the European Union (EU) emissions of greenhouse gases fell during 2005, according to the EU environment agency. The figures reverse a trend that saw EU emissions of the basket of six greenhouse gases identified under the Kyoto Protocol rise during 2003 and 2004. Increased hydroelectric output and a fall in coal-fired generation were a major factor.
