EU eco-committee votes to reject delay imposing airline carbon tax

The EU increased risk of a trade war with the US and China, when a parliamentary committee voted to reject a proposal to allow foreign airlines using European airports not to pay for emissions over non-EU airspace, according to Shipping Gazette.
The vote held at the environment committee must now win support in the full 766-strong EU Parliament in early April before it can become law.
The European Parliaments 71-member eco-committee voted against a deal to extend a "stop the clock" measure exempting intercontinental flights from the carbon tax, officially known as the Emissions Trading System (ETS).
