The Environmental Protection Agency issued a draft finding that, if finalized, would trigger federal rules to curtail greenhouse gas emissions from U.S. commercial aviation. This would add aircraft to the list of entities covered by the Obama administration's climate program, which aims to reduce U.S. emissions by 26 to 28% below 2005 levels by 2025. The action on Wednesday afternoon, known as an "endangerment finding" under the Clean Air Act, is not accompanied by draft regulations that would cut emissions from aircraft, which amount to 11% of the greenhouse gas emissions from the U.S. transport sector. Instead, the EPA plans to see what rules come out of the International Civil Aviation Organization in 2016, and then issue rules in agreement with the ICAO guidance. The ICAO is an organization comprised of international governments, airlines, aircraft manufacturers and others that issues guidelines for the aviation sector to follow.
