    Default Green energy v jobs?

    California is about to vote on a referendum,Proposition 23,on whether to roll back previous legislation setting ambitious targets for green energy until unemployment is lowered. The state's high unemployment rate of 12% prompted the referendum. California Proposition 23 (2010) - Ballotpedia

    Should Ireland also reconsider its commitment to expensive green energy?
