EU commits to stringent reductions in carbon emissions
BBC: At a meeting yesterday in Brussels, the leaders of the countries that constitute the European Union committed themselves to reducing the EU's total emissions of carbon dioxide by 2030 to levels that are 40% lower than they were in 1990. Although the target is ambitious, it represents a compromise between environmental groups, which had pushed for greater reductions, and the leaders of the countries, such as Poland, that obtain a large fraction of their electrical energy from coal-fired plants. The EU is already on course to cut its CO2 emissions by 20% by 2020 compared with 1990 levels.
