If it's one world and one ecosystem, why are we EU peeps expected to pay?

India and China can afford their own space programs. They already pollute more than we do.


EU to further exempt foreign flights from emissions scheme


The EU had ordered foreign carriers to buy credits under its ETS in 2012 but backtracked when countries said it violated their sovereignty and China threatened to cancel plane orders to Airbus Group SE.
It granted airlines operating flights into and out of the EU an exemption until 2016 to give the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) time to craft a global system.
The UN body clinched a deal in October, raising hopes that the EU executive would prolong the extension beyond the end of this year when it automatically expires unless the law is changed.
“Expectation is it will be extended,” one of the sources said.
The proposal by the EU executive, the European Commission, will be adopted at the end of January, two sources said.

they pollute more than we do and their economy (some places) are stronger than ours. I agree they should be able to afford their own space programs, rather than receiving help.
