I agree, subby. That's sure to revolve the problem.

These are premature emissions.

Revolving this problem should be semi-automatic. No single action is going to revolve it.

The U.S.,, Russia AND China all agree on an issue!? Hell has definately been getting snow showers.

China, which according to Airbus and other sources in the aerospace industry is delaying plane orders worth up to $14 billion from European planemaker Airbus over the row, has asked the EU to push the scheme back by a year.

I can see Boeing's smile from here, and I'm in Maine

External pressure on the Chinese government does not work. They will lie, dodge, make excuses, stand obstinate, whatever, but they will seldom cave to it. Over any issue.

They do not want to appear weak.

I'm guess that the rest of the world hasn't figured that you can't tell China what to do, because they sure keep trying.

If they know what kind of aircraft the chinese are flying, shouldnt they be able to figure out the emissions,without china actually giving it to the EU?
It would seem, some of the planes are manufactured by airbus. Shouldnt airbus already know what those planes are putting out? Based on how much fuel they are taking on, lengtht of flight, and type of aircraft they should be able to figure rough numbers.
Especially since chinas not exactly known for being completely honest, i doubt i would trust whatever line they fed the EU anyways.

Yup. If you want the Chinese to do something you act about how great you are because "You're the only country in the world that can do this". The CCP pull out all the stops to start doing it as well and prove they're a modern country too.
