    Made what seemed like a pointless decision-trading a small decrease in Euro CO2 for a significant increase in NOX SOOT SMOG-
    But remember-FUEL PRICES-oil-was expected to rise and rise
    so using less oil-drove this policy
    The CO2 decrease-wasn't the main goal.
    It was all about decreasing oil consumption-reliance on the unstable ME

    Yeah no one predicted $42 oil-in 2015-or the USA becoming a fuel exporter- FRACKING ETC
    It wasn't really climate-it was OIL running out-becoming more expensive-crashing economies
    It might have been SOLD as about climate-GREEN- but it was about oil economies and dependence on the unstable middle east
