German govt downs solar spending, obeys nuclear companies

“Every solar energy plant and every biomass plant undermines the power of the four big energy companies and with that weakens their standing in society. After a loss of 16 percent of the traditional companies’ market share, the democratization of the energy business had to be stopped. So down with the funding for solar energy and up with the lifespans of nuclear plants seems to be the government’s thinking.”

Die Tageszeitung 30 Oct 10, :”The Christian Democrats once have again a distinct profile: The extension of the lifespan of nuclear plants is pure conservatism — and it reveals a kind of acceptance that the means of production are concentrated in the hands of the dominant energy companies and not in the hands of the people.

The Social Democrats and Greens had redistributed those means of production from above to below. Energy production was democratized.”
