From todays's ATW online:

EU carriers are voicing their displeasure over the EU's unilateral emission scheme and warning of a possible impending trade war if the EU does not back down.

That is news, how?

I found the comment section to that article fairly amusing though. Almost on par with youtube.

Looks like additional pressure on the EU lawmakers from their own constituents.

We will see if it has any effect.

I dont see why the IATA could manage the whole issue of carbon emissions rather than the EU?

I am not aware of any suggestion to put it on IATA's plate. ICAO got the task after Kyoto but failed to take action. Not sure if it was EU or member states bringing it up at at least two meetings and being told to go do something by themselves, so they did.

It finally lit the ICAO fire and they now hope to have a draft ready second half of next year. Some 15 years after receiving the task. They make building airports look fast.
Don’t repeat earlier generations mistakes. Learn history for a better future.

Umm, is it not because IATA (or ICAO?) can, unlike the EU, provide a global solution? And admittedly, I'm not an expert on this matter.
