Thank you very much.
There are a number of factors. The first concerns costs. I'm not an economist either, but the life cycle approach absolutely has to be put forward.
The life cycle approach enables us to establish, from the cradle to the grave, the costs incurred by production or for an activity, not only economic costs, but environmental costs as well.
In the field of climate change, the guilty parties are rarely the first victims, which is an enormous problem as regards responsibility. That's why elements were put in place with regard to responsibility and fairness in the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, and in which an attempt is being made to apply the precautionary principle.
The second comment I'd like to make concerns the carbon market. That market makes it possible to make adjustments within countries and between countries, and within industrial sectors and between industries, so that we can change reductions, make lower cost reductions available to everyone in a single market. So this market is one of a number of very powerful instruments and absolutely must be put in place so that we can hope to achieve Kyoto Protocol targets and go even beyond Kyoto, if we want to control the problem.
In closing, I'd like to comment on the bill. This bill would have been excellent if it had been introduced in 1998.
