Joint leadership urged by EC

The European Parliament adopted a resolution on November 19 calling on ministers to stand firm on the EU's 15% target for reduction of C02 emissions by 2010. The resolution was passed by a large majority which urged for a "tougher binding commitment" by Europe, regardless of decisions taken or not taken at the Kyoto summit. Nuclear was ruled out as an option to meet the 15% target. Instead, a series of supporting measures were put forward, such as an energy tax, increased use of renewables and doing away with legislation which countermands efforts to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases.
