2 Total EU-15 greenhouse gas emissions in relation to the Kyoto target

3 Changes in EU ‑ 15 greenhouse gas emissions by sector between 1990 and 2004

4 Road transport responsible for biggest growth in emissions

5 Change in EU-15 transport emissions, , by mode

6 The environment gives the biggest subsidy to road use

7 EU travellers shift from rail to road

8 Greenhouse emissions from the various transport modes overlap

9 Growth in energy consumption by road between 1990 and 2000

10 The growth of transport fuel use in Ireland since 1990

11 Comparison of growth in oil use between sectors

12 How Ireland's oil use in transportation compares per person with other EU countries

13 Road freight fuel consumption has broken its link with GDP growth

14 No improvement in energy efficiency of road freight

15 Private car fuel consumption has grown in step with people's incomes

16 Real cost of Irish motoring now half its 1970s and 80s level

21 Free/equal per capita Emissions tonnage from petrol and diesel 100% Irish refiners and importers of petrol and diesel Individuals Units retired € Sell Market Makers Cap and Share flow chart

22 Advantages of Cap & Share 1 Guarantees the emissions target can be met Would be seen as fair – protects the less well off Easy to implement - based on the electoral register Avoids the need for special tax breaks for biofuels Scheme could be extended to cover heating oils and gas
