Green House Emission Ruled for Planes: UN

UNSC Demands Unrestricted Access To Crash Site
  • A UN panel proposed long-sought greenhouse gas emissions standards for airliners and cargo planes.
  • This drew praise from the White House and criticism from environmentalists who said they would be too weak to actually slow global warming.
  • The standards would require an average 4 percent reduction in fuel consumption during the cruise phase of flight starting in 2028 when compared with planes delivered in 2015.
