The Law of Unintended Consequences...

...will always come back to bite you in the ass.

Note to the French, and especially the U.S. Government:

When you give money away, don't be surprised when people take you up on the offer at greater-then-expected rates.

I especially loved this part:

"Most panels installed in France were made in China with a highly questionable carbon footprint," Environment Minister Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet told parliament last month. Policy must "create jobs in France, not subsidize Chinese industry."

Good thing we're creating all those Green Energy jobs... in the least Green country on Planet Earth, huh?
