EU renews carbon cut calls
MORE CUTS PLANNED: The EU continues its charge against reducing CO2 emissions by calling for fresh targets for 2020.
The European Union has renewed its call for automakers to lead the fight against climate change, seeking a 2020 target that is 27% below the current limit.
Detroit News reports that the EU on Wednesday proposed a CO2 emissions cap (for passenger vehicles) of 95 g/km by 2020.
COULD TAKE YEARS
Current EU legislation requires automakers to cut CO2 emissions to 130 g/km.
The new draft law would need to be approved by EU national governments and the European Parliament. It is a process, Detroit News says, that could take a year or longer to complete.
