That's not bad enough, they want to feed at the Government trough some more.
Quote: Wind power provided 18.9% of electricity production and 24.1% of generation capacity in Denmark in 2008. In 2012 the Danish government adopted a plan to increase the share of electricity production from wind to 50% by 2020
Many countries tried to subsidize green technology such as wind power, and most failed to make a viable industry. The Danish system was an exception, providing 30% of initial capital cost in the early years which was gradually reduced to zero, but still maintaining a feed-in tariff.

Nuclear power’s potential as a solution to global warming and power needs comes with the industry’s long and expensive history of taxpayer subsidies and excessive charges to utility ratepayers. These subsidies not only enabled the nation’s existing reactors to be built in the first place, but have also supported their operation for decades. As we've seen with the Fukushima reactors they are also anything but safe. Just ask the children in japan with thyroid cancer.
Solar efficiency, while steadily improving is still a few years from being practical. These are problems with no easy solutions, but shutting down any new coal plant construction and putting unnecessary restrictions on existing ones is a "solution" to a non existent problem. Neither is a long term viable solution to energy needs.
I don't know what the real solution to any of this is, but knee jerk reactions based on pseudo science won't help matters, neither do dangerous solutions that require subsidies, that is unsustainable.
