EU presidency proposes new weakening of EU car rules
New cars stand on a field outside the Audi factory in Ingolstadt near MunichBy Barbara Lewis BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Lithuania, holder of the EU presidency, has made a new proposal to weaken rules on how much carbon new cars can emit from 2020, in line with demands from Germany and its luxury manufacturers, EU diplomats said. The proposal is stoking anger in Brussels, where Germany's negotiating tactics are regarded as heavy-handed. The latest compromise would allow a phase-in of a 95 grams per kilometer (g/km) limit on auto carbon dioxide emissions until 2022 and increase the number of supercredits, a mechanism that gives companies more flexibility, the diplomats said. ...

Daniel Day Lewis accepts the Oscar for best actor for his role in By Brent Lang LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) - Derek Jacobi almost had a chance to rhapsodize about the virtues of eating human liver with fava beans and a nice chianti.
