NY Times: A cautionary tale for U.S. solar industry

An interesting piece from today's New York Times profiles a town in Spain that staked it all on solar and saw a rapid boom followed by an even more rapid bust when the Spanish government realized it would have to subsidize the nation's solar industry indefinitely and pulled back its support. The article draws parallels with the push to create green jobs in the U.S.
