About this book

The emissions reduction targets agreed in the Kyoto Protocol are only the beginning of what needs to be achieved in international climate negotiations. While studies suggest that major emissions reductions by industrialised countries can be achieved at low economic cost, both these and early reductions by developing countries are inevitably a major political challenge.

This book focuses on European policy toward climate change, specifically its ramifications for the aviation industry. With air travel predicted to grow enormously in the coming years, the issue of climate change is hugely topical for this important industry.
