Environmental and Energy Policy is flawed in many countries. Nothing illustrates this better than Vince Cable's “Green Investment Bank” or France's 612.5 million euro attempt to create 10,000 jobs building windmills (that is 61,250 euro a job!).
We want employment, so why do we tax labour? Taxing something means that less of it is used (QED). The surest way to increase employment is by decreasing income tax and other taxes on labour.
