Women are going to be the reason that Donald Trump is NEVER President!
So you cannot, CANNOT tell me that it's "scare" tactics by the right, when you don't even know WHAT damage this thing will do.
Now can you?
Of course, you COULD throw it in my face I cannot say that it will hurt anything, but I atleast, have history and common sense on my side, you have...

My Endo doc went over my blood work. "I see your estrogen level is now at 315, do you feel like you have too much Estrogen now?"
I told her "... N... N.. No..." and started crying.

Read the bill,not the blogs.
As for "building stuff".. you have heard of the credit crisis right? The thing you yanks started? I aint saying the Spanish are angels because people have been saying (including their own politicians) for many many years that Spain was far too dependant on the construction industry, but the main reason for the collapse is the credit crisis started by the US.
Spain built more homes than France, Germany and the UK combined each year for quite a considerable number of years the last decade. That is a hell of a lot of homes. These homes and non residents buying them as a second house, pushed up the prices by astronomical figures driving Spanish nationals out of buying homes in certain areas. It was and is so bad that a majority of young people still live at home in their mid 20s and even many in their 30s because they can not afford to buy or rent a hours or flat... this is in the major cities.
Half of the Spanish unemployment is construction related.. at least. The Spanish economy is still coming off 40 years of dictatorship and its labour market and industrial base is still adapting to the changes. It is especially the labour market that has a hard time in adapting and changing and it dont help that the socialists are in power at the moment.. although the conservatives did jack **** when they were in power to change the labour laws.
So no, the Spanish unemployment is not because of investing heavily in green energy. In fact I would call the article a hit piece since there is very little reference material, and I suspect their "facts" came from right wing sources in Spain who have like in the US been against investing in anything green...
Like it or not, investing in green energy takes dependency away from oil and that can only be good regardless of the initial price. Like it or not, Spain produces over 40% of its energy needs from renewables and will soon get over 50% of its energy needs from renewables and like it that will mean that when the economies of the world start working again, and energy (oil) prices go up, Spain will be sitting nicely along with France, Sweden and others who get a large part of their energy from renewables, where as the US will still be hurting and complaining..
