UK environment minister wants emissions trading extended to road travel.

UK Environment Secretary David Miliband is trying to persuade the EU to extend its emissions-trading scheme used for air travel to the roads, according to a report in the Epoch Times.

If Milliband is successful, car-owners could be given a carbon allowance which they could extend by buying surplus credits from other road-users whose own emissions fall below their allocated quota.

Miliband said that in order to deliver a low-carbon transport policy the EU must also extend the scheme to road-users.
