It is no coincidence that Germany and Spain, which have shut the door on new nuclear power, have invested most in renewables and seen their green industries rocket. Spain now generates as much as 40% of its electricity from wind power and studies show the investment in renewables has lowered wholesale electricity prices in Spain by more than the cost of the incentive they used to kickstart the industry.
Where in fuck did that come from?
Here\’s the report on the Spanish experience.
It\’s full of lines about how the rise in electricity costs have killed off more jobs than have been created in building windmills. Difficult to see how a rise in costs is a fall really.
Do we just assume Sauven is lying?
