    That's the type of thing I really,really dislike here sometimes: A person reads ONE article, picks out the part he or she likes and posts it here as a conclusion that is drawn from  what is essentially a small corner of a picture that is a lot bigger. Very few bother to read the source, and just say "oh, yeah, thanks for this."
    I live in Germany, and knew that the diary was not giving an accurate picture, as Lawrence and others pointed out farther down the thread, and now you. I was too busy to respond yesterday, so thank you for doing it better than I could have. The Germans are nothing if not well-organized, and think things through from A to Z - NOTHING is left to chance. The mentality is completely different from the American way, and if you haven't lived here, or spent a number of years in a German environment, there is no way you can draw a definitive conclusion from ONE or even 10 articles about Germany energy policy, or how it fits into the German culture, let alone about how it all fits in the context of the EU. Amazing! The nonsense one can come up with based on ONE article in the context of a complex, highly-industrialized country that prides itself on efficiency (and rightly so) and an even more complex BIG group of countries defies belief. And a couple of commenters here always spout the same stuff over and over again, without an inkling of what they are talking about from a European perspective. Since you live in Iceland now, I know you know exactly what I'm saying.
