"Over 190 Countries Adopt Plan to Offset Air Travel Emissions"

"Governments from more than 190 countries on Thursday adopted a measure that for the first time will reduce the climate impact of international jet travel.

The accord adds an exclamation point to a week in which enough countries signed onto the broader Paris climate deal to ensure that it will enter into force later this year.

The aviation plan, the product of years of negotiations, was approved by acclamation at a meeting of the International Civil Aviation Organization, or I.C.A.O., in Montreal."
