Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Clement and others were ministers of economy from the big SPD - and energy policy was chiefly in the hands of the former

Latter. Wolfgang Clement BTW was PM of Rhineland-Westphalia before he came to the government, as coal-friendly as it gets. His predecessor as economy minister, Werner Müller, came from the head of VEBA (one of the energy companies that fusioned into E.ON) and after leaving the government he went on to become CEO of RAG, the biggest coal energy company in Germany. Just to emphasize how much the German coal problem is married to the Rhineland SPD.
