Germany Cries Foul Over EU Plans to Cut Car Emissions

Germany has attacked European Commission proposals to cut car C02 emissions limits, saying they unfairly hit the country’s auto industry. The measures are intended to curb global warming.

Under the plans, automobile manufacturers would have to reduce carbon emissions produced by their fleets of passenger cars to an average of 120 grams per kilometer by 2012. Currently, new cars emit some 160 grams on average. Should they not comply to the guidelines, automakers are to face steep fines.
