Czech minister for trade and industry Martin Riman has said he will urge the government to fight the European Commission's decision to slash the Czech Republic's greenhouse gas emission quotas in a European court. Mr. Riman said the Czech Republic could also lodge its challenge in tandem, with Poland which also had its quotas reduced. The European Commission said on Monday that the Czech Republic's carbon dioxide quotas should not exceed 86.8 million tonnes, which is 14.8 percent lower than what the Czechs requested. Poland's CO2 quotas were slashed by 26 percent. Minister Riman said this was particularly unfair in view of the EU newcomers' booming economies.
