Spain has been at the forefront of environmental awareness from a public standpoint. What happens when government gets involved? Jobs are destroyed. Western Business Roundtable, referring to the spanish study, states
that every renewable job created by the Spanish government destroyed an average of 2.2 other jobs. Each “green” megawatt installed in Spain destroyed 5.39 jobs in non-energy sectors, the study found.
Even worse, ninety percent of such jobs were only temporary.
