More solar panels in Amsterdam

After just writing about how the Netherlands doesn’t need more solar panels, the municipality of Amsterdam is looking to place a bunch of them along a freeway (link in Dutch).

This seems like such a vanity project. If the government actually wanted to do a project that would have a sizable environmental impact, why not reduce the price of public transportation, which is so high in the Netherlands that it’s often cheaper to drive for two people.

That’s one example, I’m sure there are plenty more. I’m all for environmental initiatives as long as they aren’t yuppy vanity projects.
