    All the tax subsidies required to make green energy seem profitable have taken their toll.

    Madrid estimates 70 percent of the two million jobs which were lost in Spain since the start of the economic downturn were directly or indirectly related to the construction sector.

    Last year the government introduced a hotly contested labour market reform that cut the country's high cost of firing workers and gave companies more flexibility to reduce working hours and staff levels in economic downturns -- changes that he argued would boost job creation.

    And it's already known by economists that 2.2 jobs are being lost for every 1 green job created.

    Spain had a huge housing boom where nobody lost money so that can not be used as an excuse as it is the Scapegoat of our economy.

    Further Spain was the cheapest place to live in Europe thus it attracted a huge number of immigrants.

    Only thing that failed was the government tinkering, instead of lowering taxes and building nuclear power to grow industry Spain chooses to subsidize Wind Turbines and Solar Farms.

    30% unemployment is the result as well as expensive electricity.

    You almost gotta laugh about how close the radical greenies came to overthrowing the American government. Obama thought it was a done deal when he appointed a communist who once led a looting and arson rampage to be on the "green jobs board". The day Obama appointed Van Jones was probably the day the American people finally realized what happened to their Country. Obama was forced to fire Jones and the democrat majority in congress was handed the most stunning defeat in a century. The mainstream media still doesn't get it though and they will support Obama even if they go broke doing it.

    I think we should start burning our food for fuel. Oh wait! We're already doing that.

    Laugh, they did get away with it, Cap and Trade and CO2 restrictions are being implemented across the Country. They by-passed the Senate.

    The American people are clueless about what happened and is happening, nothing has changed, Obama is a 100% success. Everything Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Gore, and Clinton wanted, they have. I should ad Bush, Bush has done nothing to help, silence in the face of tyranny is direct support of tyranny.

    Bush is supposedly an Oil man, where is the outrage or critisism. I guess Bush does live in a glass house.
