Europe threatens U.S. with carbon tariffs to combat climate change

Europe threatens US with carbon tariffs.European countries frustrated by  inaction on climate change are taking a lesson from President Donald  Trump’s trade wars — and threatening carbon tariffs on laggards like the  United States.

By imposing tariffs on goods from the  U.S. and other countries that lack tough climate policies, the Europeans  would help their own industries avoid being handicapped by the EU’s  greenhouse gas efforts. But if they hit the U.S., they would risk a  worsening trade war with the Trump administration, which has already  threatened hefty tariffs on goods such as French champagne and German  autos over a range of competition disputes.
