EC ENERGY TAX
European Community energy and environment ministers
meeting in December 1991 advanced the controversial energy tax a step by
authorizing the European Commission to draft proposed legislation. The draft is
to be ready this spring, in time for consideration prior to the June Earth
Summit in Rio. Proponents of the tax feel this will demonstrate that the
Community is serious about limiting CO2 emissions at 1990 levels by the year
2000. For several views on the tax proposal see Intl. Environ. Rptr., p.
670, Dec. 18, 1991; for background information see ibid., p. 645, Dec.
4, and New Scientist, p. 12, Dec. 14.
