    Since Germany entered into its failed Green Revolution Utility rates for your average German have jumped 200 percent.

    Germany's economic minister told a audience of Wind and Solar advocates that their switch to alternative energy was on the verge of total failure.

    LOL !! Apparently you could hear a pin drop.

    OK Here's the data from 2014

    On Sunday, Germany’s impressive streak of renewable energy milestones continued, with renewable energy generation surging to a record portion — nearly 75 percent — of the country’s overall electricity demand by midday. With wind and solar in particular filling such a huge portion of the country’s power demand, electricity prices actually dipped into the negative for much of the afternoon, according to Renewables International.

    In the first quarter of 2014, renewable energy sources met a record 27 percent of the country’s electricity demand, thanks to additional installations and favorable weather. “Renewable generators produced 40.2 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity, up from 35.7 billion kilowatt-hours in the same period last year,” Bloomberg reported.

    LOL !!

    Think Progress ? Stay away from hack websites and you might learn something.

    The GERMAN FINANCE MINISTER just declared that their Green energy revolution was on the verge of TOTAL FAILURE.

    At a meeting with a bunch of Wind and Solar advocates.

    They were a little upset. Lol...

    Utility rates for the average German citizen jas jumped 200 percent and their air is dirtier than it was before they entered into this disaster.

    I bet you won't find that at " Think Progress "

    Totally agree, except for the headline that defines them as extremists.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy
