Green Makes Spain Go Mainly Down the Drain

Pajamas Media exclusive from Christopher Horner: a leaked Spanish government internal document confirms what non-governmental sources have been suggesting for months: Green economic policies are completely effing up Spain's economy.
Yes, that very Spain that President Obama has referred to on numerous occasions as a model of how a nation should go green.
The government report does not expressly confirm the highest-profile finding of the non-governmental report: that Spain's "green economy" program cost the country 2.2 jobs for every job "created" by the state. However, the figures published in the government document indicate they arrived at a job-loss number even worse than the 2.2 figure from the independent study.
This document is not a public report. Spanish media has referred to its existence in recent weeks though, while Bloomberg and the Washington Examiner have noted the impact: Spain is now forced to jettison its plans -- Obama's model -- for a "green economy."
The PJ Media article provides an English translation of the Spanish document.
