The article reports that a few weeks from now, Great Britain and other European Union (EU) member states will start to implement the next critical phase in the battle against global warming. Great store has been set by the EU Emissions Trading Scheme, which comes into force on January 1, 2005 as part of the EU's commitment to cutting the amount of greenhouse gases pumped into the atmosphere. Under the scheme, National Allocation Plans will outline the number of carbon dioxide emission allowances that governments can assign to energy intensive industrial plants. INSET: Emissions trading: illusion or reality?.
