German calls EU CO2 proposals "wrong", "harmful"


BERLIN, Dec 19 (Reuters) - The German goverment said the European Commission proposals to force down emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) were "wrong" and "harmful" as they put the burden on makers of larger cars. Government spokesman Thomas Steg told a news conference on Wednesday that Germany believed all carmakers in the European Union should contribute to meet CO2 reduction targets. He said the Commission's proposals would mean one-sided punishment for German carmakers.
