EU ENERGY POLICY "BARKING MAD" SAYS MEP

This article gives the details. Here is a short extract: "Aluminium has lost 42,000 jobs since 2007 (while imports rise).  Steel 80,000.  Petroleum refining 10,000 direct jobs, and an estimated 40,000 indirect.  Chemicals, glass and cement can tell similar stories.  This is what former Industry Commissioner Antonio Tajani called “an industrial massacre in Europe”. This is an excellent article that succinctly sums up the position the EU is in. Barking mad is about right.
