‘EU past CO2-belasting op luchtvaart aan’

AMSTERDAM – De Europese Unie is van plan om de Co2-belasting op de luchtvaart in Europa aan te passen en zo tegemoet te komen aan protesten van buitenaf.

Een vliegtuig op vliegveld JFK gaat de landingsbaan opIn het aangepaste plan worden vluchten van buitenaf naar Europa niet meer voor de volle pond belast, maar alleen voor het gedeelte dat in Europa wordt gevlogen. Dit meldt persbureau Bloomberg op basis van 2 anonieme bronnen.

De levensvatbaarheid van het nieuwe plan is afhankelijk van een stemming op een VN-conferentie deze maand. Daar zullen andere landen aangeven of ze bereid zijn overeen te stemmen met dit voorstel. In oktober wordt het plan naar verwachting openbaar gemaakt.

Felle protesten 

De EU komt met de aanpassing tegemoet aan de felle protesten die een eerdere opzet veroorzaakten bij vooral buitenlandse regeringen. Onder andere de Verenigde Staten en China verboden hun luchtvaartmaatschappijen om de Co2-belasting te betalen.

De Europese Commissie besloot uiteindelijk eind 2012 om de invoering van de heffing uit te stellen totdat er een overeenkomst zou zijn.

    The hospital says it “regrets falling short” of the family’s expectations.

    These three figures — William Rick Singer, Mark Riddell and Rudolph Meredith, respectively — are at the center of the nationwide scandal in which 33 parents are accused of using their wealth and means to help their children game the college admissions system.
    But those three names do not appear anywhere in the complaint text, though the document gives enough clues to make clear who is who. Instead, they are named as Cooperating Witness 1, 2 and 3, and each agreed to plead guilty and to cooperate with the government in the hope of obtaining leniency when they are sentenced, the complaint says.

    Trump was surrounded at Friday’s event by officials from Customs and Border Protection as well as surviving family members of those who have loved ones killed by undocumented immigrants. Attorney General William Barr was also at the President’s veto event.
    While some lawmakers including some Republicans — have argued against the President’s use of national emergency powers in this instance, the Justice Department set forth a robust defense of the President’s authority to do so in a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell earlier this month, according to a copy obtained by CNN on Friday.
    “The President acted well within his discretion in declaring a national emergency concerning the southern border,” wrote Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd, setting out the legal basis for the proclamation under the National Emergencies Act and additional statutory authorities, which largely tracks an internal memo issued by the Office of Legal Counsel at the Justice Department.

Her parents were the Swedish king Gustavus Adolphus and his German wife, Maria Eleonora, had already had two daughters—a stillborn princess in 1620, and then the first Princess Christina, who was born in 1623 and died the following year.3] Excited expectation surrounded Maria Eleonora’s third pregnancy in 1626.

    Despite residing in Germany for nearly 30 years, there are still some things I cannot wrap my mind around. I may have married a German, pay German taxes, and have German(-American) children, but I guess my US mentality still shines through.

    Like when it comes to personal space. I’ll be standing in the supermarket, in front of a shelf full of products, deliberating over the selection, and inevitably a hand will slip itself in front of my face and grab an item from the row. Many Germans seem to not have any qualms about this at all, but it still takes me aback sometimes.
