EC TRANSPORT PAPER


Item #d93feb121

A policy paper on transport, approved by the European Commission in October and released in December, forecasts a rise in CO2 emissions from vehicles in the European Community, despite the EC goal of maintaining 1990 level emissions by the year 2000. It concludes that technical measures alone will be insufficient to stabilize vehicle emissions, and suggests mechanisms such as user fees on various types of transport. According to New Scientist (p. 7, Jan. 2), environmentalists attacked the paper for its weak proposals and emphasis on private as opposed to public transportation. (See also Global Environ. Change Rep., pp. 3-4, Dec. 18 1992) An analysis of recent transport policy developments in Europe and concern over CO2 emissions is given in Global Environ. Change Rep., pp. 1-3, Nov. 20.
