Europeans beginning to see the light, or darkness as it were, on green energy
From FOXNews -- In a radical change of policy, the Netherlands is reducing its targets for renewable energy and slashing the subsidies for wind and solar power. It's also given the green light for the country's first new nuclear power plants for almost 40 years.
Why the change? Wind and solar subsidies are too expensive, the Financial Times Deutschland , reports.
When green energy becomes cheaper than traditional fossil-fuel, hydro-electric, and nuclear energy, without government subsidies, then the American people will use it. Right now, it's too expensive, inefficient, and unproven on large scales to be competitive in the free energy market-place. Holland has figured that out. I wonder when, or even if, liberals in the US will get a clue?
