ABSTRACT
The article reports on the expansion of the carbon offset trade in Europe to include aviation. The European Union's (EU) Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) will attempt to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from aviation to mitigate the impact of climate change. According to the EU, equally pricing the carbon emitted from airplanes flying into and out of European airports is fair and reasonable.
