The Dutch government issues capital to subsidies for the 'reduction' of CO₂ emissions. As you now understand, this 'reduction' is indeed a reduction of emissions, but not a reduction of the concentration of CO₂ in the atmosphere. The concentration still goes - albeit slowed - up. If you reduce emissions by 49%, around 51% CO₂ will still be added to the atmosphere. With the aim of tackling climate change, the Netherlands therefore subsidizes all sorts of things that do not work against climate change.
