>Solar cycle paths are turning out as a succes
>Now the cyclepath with solar panels in Krommenie, the Netherlands, has been functioning for a year. The seventy meter long cycle track has generated energy for three households. The problem with damage of the top layer, coating, is already resolved.
There are still three places in the Netherlands, and two abroad, where a solar pavement is laid down. This need not be a bike lane, a bus lane is also possible.
'' A bus lane captures plenty of sunshine, a limited amount of time is used and you know exactly how a bus loaded the road. It can also be combined with electric buses. You charge the bus without contact with the energy from the road surface. That is a picture of the future. ''
>The 70 meter long road, called Sola Road, delivered kilowatt-hour in 9800. An average household uses in a year, more than 3,300 kilowatt hours.
Aint that pretty cool

In my country and I'm sure this is probably the same for many other countries the majority of C02 emissions come from cars.
This means that unless electric cars/hybrids/hydrogen fueled cars are rushed onto the market and filthy dumb cager scum embrace them then there will inevitably be restrictions and pigovian taxes associated with driving.
Does anyone here have the foresight to predict what will happen? After the recent Paris talks it seems like pretty much every country is on board with reducing emissions and when the biggest chunk of emissions is coming from cars and valid alternatives exist I think governments are going to direct funding that would normally go towards subsidizing fuel and building roads into improving bus/train/tram infrastructure and maybe a tax break or bicycle subsidy or something of that nature.
I don't expect that the cagers will go down without a fight but with climate change becoming more and more accepted by the mainstream, the UN, first world democracies and the elderly who are the most likely to be sceptical dying off I think it inevitable that these societal changes will occur.
In any case, lets not discuss whether man made climate change exists - we're not /pol/ or /sci/ lets discuss what changes we're likely to experience in the coming years.
