The article reports that according to a report by the international environmental group International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT), the U.S. commercial aviation will not be able to meet fuel-efficiency goals of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). Topics discussed include the goals emphasizing reduction in greenhouse-gas emissions under carbon dioxide (CO2) rules for aircrafts, fall in fuel burn and an increase in fuel cost.
