We need to get out of this mindset in Europe and the west in general that we and we alone can solve Climate Change through legislation and taxes. The reality of the matter is that the biggest driver for reducing CO2 emissions was the end of the Cold War. Since the mid 90s CO2 emissions have been steadily coming down across the West. We're already on the right path, but as long as the rest of the world continues to develop and grow at the rate it is doing so, our efforts are just but a drop in the Ocean.
Not every one is a nerdy car guy so you don't have to know this but......the EURO car emission standards are exported to the world.

Globally there are 3 main car emission standards: USA, Euro, and Japan. USA standards are used as source for standards in Canada and Mexico and implicitly in the rest of America. Japan standards are only applied in Japan. However, the largest Asian countries (China and India), and one of the argest car exporters (South Korea) take Euro standards as inspiration for their local ones.

So, useless legislation
