Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Let me put this as bluntly as at all possible.

Fact checking will help.

I would also recommend avoiding blunt contact with those employed in Germany's negative externality, as they tend to be as proud of their export success around the globe as the Danes.  What portion of Danish GDP comes from wind?  (Hint:  one fourth of all Danish export credits go to wind)  In addition to lowered electricity prices, isn't that a positive externality?

As comments here have stated, Germany is quickly growing a vibrant solar manufacturing industry to export.  Mirroring wind.

Indeed half of all PV cells produced in Germany in 2008 went for export.
