Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
This kind of government meddling is not helpful.

Instead of whining and making waves the French government should institute reforms which make it more profitable to run steel mills in France (like making capital investments tax deductible), reforms that create alternative jobs for unemployed steel workers (like part-funding retraining programs in collaboration with industrial companies in sectors where there is a lack of trained workers) and reforms that make workers worry less worried about being fired from unprofitable companies (like making time-limited unemployment insurance more generous).

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.
