EU court greenlights carbon emissions tax for planes

The EU Observer reports that the European Court of Justice has ruled that EU plans to levy an emissions tax on airlines from 1 January are valid, and has dismissed a challenge to the tax by north American airlines. Under the scheme, airlines have to pay for 15% of their CO2 emissions. The figure rises to 18% in 2013-2020.
