Environment: what is Europe doing ?

I had the opportunity of spending a month in Europe on a business trip … Slovenia, Germany, Italy.

Several things are worth noting as we Americans enter into our Green Era:
  – TRAFFIC CIRCLES … about 10-15% of neighborhood intersections are managed by
      traffic circles; they could easily handle 4 cars arriving
      simultaneously, and very rarely did I have to stop.
  – TIMER-BASED LIGHTING … in so many public buildings, such as corporate office
      buildings and apartment buildings, the public spaces
      are lit by timer-based lights, such that they turn off
      automatically after a few minutes, and are turned
      back on by either motion detection, or by easy-to-find
      and access light switches … this saves a ton of unused lighting.
