European Union Mandate Cuts in Carbon Emissions


Much like the debate in the Unit­ed States over the fuel effi­cien­cy of cars and trucks, the Euro­pean Union is about to pass leg­is­la­tion to reduce car­bon diox­ide emis­sions. Automak­ers feel too much of the bur­den is placed on them. Some fear niche automak­ers may not be able to com­ply. Leg­is­la­tors have appar­ent­ly aban­doned a deal with automak­ers to reduce emis­sions through improved engine tech­nolo­gies.
