Why would they do that, it makes no sense. All it would do is burn more energy.

Right but what if all mining is done in a certain territory because of this? Doesn't this cause geographical centralization of mining?
Suppose China, the USA, and other governments were to pass laws for mining subsidies similar to what we have with food subsidies? Would that be an attack on PoW?
