ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the proposal by the European Union (EU) to bring aviation within its emissions trading scheme (ETS). The ETS, which currently covers emissions of carbon dioxide among global warming gases, is considered a more effective means of improving the energy efficiency of air transport. The EU executive, an advisory group of experts to the European Commission urged in a report on aviation regulations that the sector be brought within the ETS and should be extended beyond Europe.
