Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
is less specific on a number of topics, in order to let people make choices freely, but informing them and giving them proper incentives.

For instance, we don't mandate car emission or fuel consumption numbers, but have variable penalties/incentives for cars that do worse/better than the average.

We don't set numbers for house consumption, but provide incentives for people to do investment in that sector, and mechanisms to help them capture (via lower payments) the energy gains they make.

In the long run, we're all dead. John Maynard Keynes
