All Scientists are Sceptics ~Professor Bob Carter

Whenever someone asserts that a scientific question is “settled,” they tell me immediately that they don’t understand the first thing about science. Science is never settled. Dr David Deming

Perhaps the most frustrating aspect of the science of climate change is the lack of any real substance in attempts to justify the hypothesis ~Professor Stewart Franks

EU backs down on airline carbon tax

EU backs down on airline carbon tax

The European Union on Tuesday backed down from a controversial plan to charge international airlines for the pollution they create on flights to and from the continent, facing retaliation from the U.S., China, and India and other nations who said it encroached on their sovereignty.
European Climate Commissioner Connie Hedegaard called for the bloc to “stop the clock” on the emissions trading system, or ETS, giving the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) another year to come up with a global solution for a meeting next November. The exemption applies to all foreign air carriers, but not those based in the EU.
Are they talking about  "the pollution they create on flights to and from the continent," or are they talking about harmless carbon dioxide emissions?
