The author reflects on the implementation of the European Union Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS). She mentions the participation of the U.S. in the ETS and comments on the European Commission's (EC) decision of allowing the U.S. to be involved. She tackles the concerns for trade war and suggests the need to come up with a grown-up plan to solve the problem in the airline industry. She also believes that aviation industry must pay its fair share of emissions taxes.
