Anti-European Union Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS) countries will meet on July 31 to find out ways to oppose the scheme. The meeting comes on the face of the EU deciding to intervene in the carbon market that will inflate prices.

 “The so-called ‘coalition of the unwilling’, including 15 non-EU states opposing the EU ETS, are gathering on July 31 to discuss possible actions against the scheme,” said Athar Husain Khan,  acting secretary general of the Association of European Airlines (AEA). The AEA had last met in February in Moscow when it had suggested retaliatory measures to be used against European industry.
