“The punishment meted out to renewable energies in the past five years amounts to more than 6 billion euros (US$8 billion),” said Sergio Otto, secretary general of the business group Renewables Foundation.
Get that. A reduction in hand-outs of other peoples money is "punishment". Moral reprobates, these folks.

The failure of the green energy?? If spanish government will have continué investing in green energy , we will have reduced more than 1 million in unemployment, reduce the half in the spending in oil. And of course the spanish cars using a electricity instead of oil.
But what happened Zapatero invest in building the cause of the problems. It put spanish debt in danger something that was very well corrected by Aznar government.The spanish problem has been the use of building property our industry and forget the other industries like metals or green energy .

But before they could get a tenth of the way there, they would be broke. No, wait, they are broke now having done what they already have.

A couple of nuclear plants would have done the trick and the SpanGov would still be solvent.
